I’ve finally got my hands on an allotment. As of today I am a fully paid up member of a private allotment society in Wolverhampton.

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little put off by the amount of work that needs doing (not to mention the dead rat in the water butt!), but these sorts of opportunities don’t come along very often.

It’s a key part of how I want to live my life, growing my own fruit and vegetables and enjoying the sun on my back while I tend my plot.

It should keep me busy for the next few months!
