Goodbye Plot 14A...
|I'm sorry to see my plot 14A sign go, but secretly pleased with its punk-style replacement|
... Hello Plot 25!
Were you fooled, even for a little bit? No, I've not lost or given up the plot - we were given new numbers just after we paid our fees last year. Going from Plot 14A to 25, shows you just how many full-size plots were divided up to meet the town's demand for allotments.
This approach, plus 2012's poor weather brought Chippenham's waiting list down substantially. However, I see over 40 new people were added to the list before the end of June 2013, showing demand is still strong here in Wiltshire.
Threadspider and I used to have our coffee and biscuits is no more. I was surprised to find a man and his digger opposite my plot one day late last year.
He's levelled the slope and added hard core to expand the parking available. I'm eyeing up the mound he's left behind at the back and contemplating using some of the wildflower seed mats I've been given to trial on there.
Have you had any changes made to your plot recently? Or perhaps you have your own special plans to do things differently this year?
