First dig .. this was back in Spring 2011

This was right at the start of my allotment. Spring 2011. The site had been cleared in December and we were waiting for a lease before we were allowed on. In March the guy at the council suggested we get on the site as the lease might take some time. (It took about 5 years).

So we went on. We had a small list of us who wanted an allotment so we started allocating them. I picked one by the canal side of the site. It gets good sun, although is a little shaded in winter as the sun takes it’s time to get up over the trees. It’s not bad though apart from it being hugely full of clay.

Why did I want to be by the canal? I’m a big kid at heart and wanted to see the canal barges go past!
