Living in a different country..........

from my friends and my family, especially my kids, has often been nearly too much for me to bear but I often found that writing a letter to people, even if I didn't send it, made it easier for me to cope with the painful homesickness I was feeling.

That is why I decided to start this blog!!!

Are you ready for this?

My Allotment Journey Begins

I have just required an allotment plot in Yorkshire UK. It was a surprise for Christmas from my daughter,(you can read about that here i wont be able to do much as I am only here for two weeks. I shall return before the end of the year and throw myself into it. It is full of weeds and the old greenhouse needs attention but I cannot wait to get started. I went today and mapped out the boundry with some string and wood posts and I took some pictures. Unfortunately I had my camera on the wrong setting so shall remedy that tomorrow when I return. I would dearly love to go fully organic but I don't think I know enough about it yet. I am hoping I get some really great advice from some seasoned organic gardeners!!
I am going to create a web site solely for the purpose of my allotment journey so look out for that. If anyone knows of any good resources for what I am about to embark on then please let me have them!!!!

Being a USA native, I didn't have a clue what an Allotment Plot was, so I had to go look it up.

Wow, what a neat idea! So pretty and organized, the ones I saw on the net. Good luck with yours.
