As many of you know, I got N0.27, my first allotment on the 27th October 2015 and started work a few days after.
The journey has been incredible and I have loved sharing it with you just as much as getting the work done and watching the plot grow.
I remember feeling so overwhelmed with no experience at all, but determined to succeed with the help of lots of books and passion. It was only last weekend when planting the potatoes that I finally felt like I was getting somewhere and would be ready in time for Spring and my first growing year.
I have been looking back at all the photo’s I have taken, which is probably more than anyone. I have to take new photo’s on every visit, it’s a must for me!
It’s also perfect for times like now when I want to reminisce.
Time to scroll back the months ….
I’m already excited to look back again in another 4 months time….have a great weekend and happy gardening!

What a transformation! And just wait until things actually start growing 🙂 You really won’t recognise the old photos by the middle of summer. Happy gardening to you too (I’m planting asparagus crowns tomorrow, so that’s me sorted).
Thank you! I can’t wait see everything growing and the plot alive with activity other than me and a fork.
Great post! It’s looking fantastic and such hard work over the last few months. Coincidentally I’m drafting a similar catch up post for my own plot 😊
Thank you Richard! Will look forward to seeing yours and sort of sorry that I got in there doing mine before you haha.
Ha ha 😛
You have come a long way…. You should be proud.
Thank you, definitely proud will certainly keep going.
You’ve made incredible progress in 4 months, and I think you’re going to have a great first year. You’ll be harvesting your first veg before you know it. Keep up the hard work, it’s good to see that you’re enjoying it so much.
Thank you, I really hope so! I do love it and can’t wait for the long summer days so I get harvesting and can make the shed all lovely inside and paint the outside. I have had the paint for months haha
you come a long way in four months well done indeed thank you for sharing have a blessed day
Thank you Linda, have a great weekend.
You can really see how much hard work you have put in and the plot is looking great! Hopefully your harvests over the year will reflect this!
I really do hope they do, can only try and I’m certainly doing that. Thank you very much.
Well done on what you’ve achieved over the winter. The coming months will see another amazing transformation as things grow. Happy plotting. xx
Thank you Mike! 🙂
Really well done, you have worked really hard. I bet you are so looking forward to summer to reap your just rewards!
Thank you very much, it certainly hasn’t been easy. Yes definitely, I can’t wait!
You’re doing so well! Love reading your progress. And I really love that random gate at the top of your plot – is there anything either side of it like a wire fence? Or is it just standing there? It’s brilliant, whatever! What have you got planned for the weekend on the allotment?
Thank you Andrew! I do love the gate, it’s the only one on the site and made me love the plot even when it was a mess. Haha, there is a wire fence around the whole plot so no it’s not just standing there 😊
Due rain overnight so will see what it’s like in the morning up at the plot. Out Sunday at a garden show meeting a fellow allotmenteer I met online, Katie Lane and probably spending too much money. You got much plans or more race practice?
Wow, great job. We got ours in early October 2015 too and haven’t made nearly as much progress. Exciting to see how it all unfolds!
Thank you very much, and yes it certainly is exciting! You will get there, will have to take a look at yours on here too 😊
Quite amazing turnaround in such a short time 😃
Thank you very much 😀
