Of the 17 items listed on my 'to do' list some tasks were done and completed quite quickly .
I didn't work in any order just choosing random tasks as the weather and time permitted . The first task completed on March 1st was #8 the raised bed by the gate . The only cost being my time as the wood had been dumped by my neighbour . The base was an old green carpet that was on the plot when I took it over back in December 2011.
I am hoping that before summer arrives that all the untidy areas on the allotment will be sorted out and a touch more pleasing on the eye. Only time will tell.
|Here we have the 'grot spot' at the front of my allotment which hopefully will be looking better come the summer.|
Finally the old gate has been removed and the new one created from a pallet is now in its place .
My next task was to remove the 'temporary' black plastic fencing that had been there for 12 months.
Thankfully that task was quite simple.
|The next task was to recycle the old gate in to a fence between the shed and the telegraph gatepost.|
|Finally after digging post holes, sawing and nailing wood . Moving the paving stone too and the job was done.|
By March 3rd I had even put the rose arch that had been in the shed since last summer up.
