Hello all, I live in Glenrothes in Fife, Scotland. As well as a few raised beds in the garden at home, I also have an allotment. It is only 100m2, but as I'm sure most of you know - you can grow a lot in that space. Hope to benefit from the community knowledge and contribute to the science mission of Grow.
My allotment is in a beautiful situation - in the old walled-garden of a large country house - now a hotel. The old 'estate' is now a council owned park. with a golf course, craft centre and lots of walks in established woods. Some plotholders have space in the old greenhouse, and others, like me, have space in the large row of brick-built cold frames. I current have garlic and just yesterday planted some courgettes in it.
I am on the allotment association committee, and can pass on what I learn to others. We have our moments of grief, but on the whole we are a sociable bunch.
