Sooooo, we're not keeping the allotment.
This is our penultimate haul of food. The only thing left are out main potato crop and tomato and pepper plants.
There are a few reasons we have decided to leave. The biggest being the allotment chairman; to put it as politely as i can, we don't like him and we don't get along. Simply, we think we've done a pretty good job so far, but he thinks we should have done more - and won't stop moaning at us and making us feel useless and unwanted at the allotments. He seems to think we're on the brink of being evicted, even though conversations with the inspection committee suggest otherwise.
Our tenancy agreement runs out in September and we will not be renewing it.
Instead, we are looking for a house with an actual garden instead of a yard.
Now, all we need is someone with a van so we can clear the allotment of all the things we have managed to accumulate there!

What a great haul!
So sad that you are being pushed out though.It seems so unfair that you have been made so uncomfortable as to leave.
Can you put your name down else where?
Having been so inspired by you, I've been trying to set up a gardening blog today!
EDIT On the plus side, great news that you are looking to get your own garden : )

That is so awesome!! I look forward to seeing some action on your new blog!
We could put our names down for another allotment, but whitemoor is the closest to us, and the rest would be just too far to go, esspcially in the summer when we need to go every day to water. So our own garden is the best bet for us :)

It's a great shame you're leaving - it looks like you put a lot of effort into it. Enjoy the fruits (and veg) of your labours!

crickson - as you can see from the last shot, we're definitely enjoying ourselves :)

just figured this out...geez. allotments have 'inspection committees' and managers? hoping you find that patch of ground you can inspect and manage on your own! but you really did well. look at all that happy stuff!
