Welcome to the Baxters Allotment Journey Blog. I started blogging in October 2011 as a way of documenting my Fatman to Ironman journey & my quit smoking progress.
That's all going well & i manage to update it on a weekly basis. I would like to mirror that here. Even if nobody reads it, it will be a good reminder for myself & family. I'm still on the ironman journey by the way, but 2 stone lighter & a non smoker for over a year. I will incorporate plot digging into my training.
So, I am quite a novice to gardening. Done the planting flowers thing etc, tried to do veggies but have not had much success in the past. I also don't have much spare cash so this will need to be done on a bit of a budget. No time limit so the development of the plot will take as long as it takes.
Quite fancy having a plot with some veggies, fruit plants & some chickens. The plot I have been allocated after just over 2 years on the waiting list is 250 SQM & looks like a bloody Jungle.

Short term plan of action.
Read up on gardening
Start to clear the jungle
Create compost area
Fence off the front of plot & attach a door with padlock
Well, that's it for now. Comments and advice from experienced gardeners will be greatly appreciated.
