March and April remained cold and unfortunately, too wet to dig on my days off. Easter arrived and a few days holiday allowed us to erect the gorgeous little ‘summer house’ shed that Hubbies parents kindly bought us for Christmas.
The allotment is situated on top of a hill and I felt it important that my greenhouse was strong enough to withstand the strong coastal winds. I spoke to other allotment owners for their views and decided on a ‘wind-proof’ plastic framed version with polycarbonate panels. It wasn’t the cheapest, but hopefully, if it lasts as well as it should, then I will save money in the long run….
By the end of the Easter holiday, we had the shed and greenhouse in place and the raised beds made!
