Well, that rant I had about overpriced allotments seemed to go down like a lead balloon. I thought I'd post something a little more inspirational.




I don't know how much time/money this guy spent but it looks worth it. My allotment looks like a skip got sick all over it. I take the "freecycle" approach to my allotment but if I had the time and money it would be nice to have one that looked like this.

Love it Paddy, so inspirational. A real show piece. Very Happy
I liked the idea of the brassica cage and laughed at the occasionl glimpses of the rougher neighboring allotments (like my veg area).
I know space is an issue but those paths were horridly narrow though.
an interesting type of stone used to divide some areas as well I see.

PS. I added youtube wraps to your post to embed the video. If you click on Edit your post, then you can see how I did it.

Yeah I'd hate to be trying to get a wheelbarrow down one of those skinny paths...in the rain...full of manure

Cheers for the embed script GPI.

Thanks for sharing the clip paddy mac fisto. Nicely narrated too. I agree narrow paths + barrow = barrow handle through one of those tightly strung plastic covers.

Hi, he had time and money to spend obviously but definitely the ideal to work towards. I love his mini greenhouses for each type of veg. He even has made use of the boundary fencing of the plot too.
