Had a very good day at an Allotment show.

Went to an Allotment about 4 miles away and one of the largest in Birmingham it has 227 plots a beautiful licenced clubhouse where the show was held. I went to pick their brains as to how they turn the show around so quickly and start the auction at 3-00 o-clock. Met most of the committee, and very friendly and helpfull they were to.

Our show has been going for 72 years now and is far to long for 2012 and serious needs lightening up and condensing the auction does not start till 18-00 hrs far to late as people want to get home for tea or dinner.

Here are some photos.


Here is a plan of the site very nice it is to

If everyone who had an allotment kept their plots like this, great for all.

If everyone who had a plot kept them like this it would be heaven for everyone around the plot NO weeds to seed and spread to all and sunder. (G have a guess at what nationallity he is the guy whose plot it is)
