The Allotments



I have been keeping an eye on the new housing being built at East End Farm and after the buildings had been demolished I went back to look from the allotments that were on the edge of the old farm


This is the view down towards where the farm building used to be not long after the demolition crew had gone in July

 Come the end of August work had begun and the footings for the new houses and the roads was on the way

 Behind me the allotments were suffering in the summer heat

 The allotments looked well kept with all types of plants and vegetables growing, this one had been covered in plastic sheet to make the weeds die off so the ground can be cultivated 

 Other plots had crops growing or had been cleared for the next crop

These allotments are always well used and though you can't see them people are working on their plots and getting one means being on a waiting list. From my point of view I'm glad they are used it would be sad to see them go and be built on like East End Farm

  1. It's always sad to me when farms are torn down and housing is built.

  3. I enjoy seeing well used allotments. A number of friends make good use of their small plots.

  5. Hi Bill, I like these shots of the allotments. The soil looks very good there. I'm guessing that folks do well with their little gardens there. Thanks for sharing. Have a good week ahead! John

    1. The ground is quite fertile and it is kept that way

  6. I like seeing the allotments. We had such high heat this summer too and my garden didn't do well.

  7. I think allotments are such a great idea but, I never saw there here until just recently. There is one spot right in the heart of the city and on the edge of a huge park that has recently been set aside for allotments. I don't know how you get one but I've seen people out there working.

  8. I like seeing the land being used for gardening. It'll be interesting to see how this develops and if housing and gardening can go hand in hand.

    1. I don't think it can be built on now though back in the 1960's a bit by the road was sold off for houseing and half the ones opposit my house so they could built a new village hall
