ABC Wednesday E for Eyesore .
This was what our allotment looked like when we first took it over - very much an Eyesore.
A lot of work from all the family in the last 18 months has cleared the area up.
I guess that the general impression is that when you take an allotment over it will be nice and clean and just ready for planting out the veg - I'm afraid that's not so.
Normally the previous owner may have got older or lost interest and let the plot literally go to seed before deciding to give it up.
