Allotment diversity and evictions and rock gardens

We’re all in favour of allotment diversity on our site, and in a week were an allotment holder was removed from a Cheltenham site for ‘not growing enough vegetables’ on his ‘rural retreat’ (quotes courtesy of the Daily Mail, a paper I wouldn’t usually even let near my runner bean trench!) we are applauding the diverse ways that people use their green spaces.

I’m going to tell you about the building of our brassica cage in a few days, because it was exciting in a rather sheddish way, but in our wanders this week we came across this. Isn’t it gorgeous?

And not only gorgeous but practical. This lovely mini rock garden, complete with exotic proteas, is actually the top of a hold-all building that one allotmenteer uses to hold watering cans and to make compost. Isn’t that amazing – full marks for versatility and originality.
