Well today we did it ...
Arranged to rent an allotment from Manchester Council - £32 per year for a half plot of 150 sq. metres
For those that do not know what an allotment is - it is a tract of ground on which you plant vegetables and fruit - normally you rent these from your local council.
This plot is not too bad but it does need a lot of work- digging and removal of some small amounts of rubbish and the building of a decent pathway.
I hope to have some photographs and progress reports in due time.
Here's to an abundance of fresh food !!!!
