|our plot when we first saw it|
|the rubbish we have dug out|
As you can see we have found an incredible amount of absolute rubbish. We have done our best to move most of it to one side, but it is impossible to do much more without help. The lady from the council promised that she would have workmen remove the stuff if we showed that we were doing our best to get the plot cleared. Let's hope she keeps that promise.

|as it looks right now - getting there!|
|a lot to do, but its enjoyable!!|
I met my allotment neighbours too. A nice young couple who were very friendly.Also had another chat with the indomitable Daphne - an allotment veteran and all round giver of advice.She could possibly compete at the 2012 Olympics if there was an event that involved talking with taking breath.I now know everything there is to know about her health, past and present.She does seem very nice, so I am being mean to mock.She also criticises everyone's allotment technique when they are not actually there, so I am sure she has a few words to say about our jungle!!
I can't say how much I enjoyed digging it today.There is something so therapeutic about physical work in the out doors, with the birds singing and nobody else around.I am going to post this and go down there again now.One day it will be a proper allotment!!
