We recently brought a allotment in basford. Its huge. 700 square metres. It needs alot of work but we are sharing it with the whole family. In the greenhouse we have planted tomatoes and chillies so far. Outside we have planted peas and potatoes. We have a potting shed, a compost heap, a wooden shed and a (soon to be)'cosy house' which has a ready made log burner inside! We plan to add a small park,for my niece so she doesn't get bored,more plants, a small orchard, wild flowers, a keyhole plant, chickens with a run and hut, a better greenhouse, improve the cosy house and tidy up the grounds. We also have around 8 raised beds! I am really looking forward to the future of the allotment. Growing my own fruit and veg to cook with. 

These pictures were taken a few weeks ago, before any work had been started!
