From our Allotment Correspondent II

Hello, Abingdon, Here's our progress at the West End Allotments since my earlier pix.

There's now peas being picked, and the long view shows the potatoes and the bean sticks ready for the runner beans; also the courgettes..

They say there's a waiting list for allotments, but there's plenty of unused land here!!

As the allotment holder here, I'd say that we're very fortunate in Abingdon to have 3 seed merchants in the town centre who sell in bulk - eg beans peas and potatoes. This helps to produce in amounts good for freezing, not to mention overcoming the weeds!

I think our town council might do more to actively promote our allotments; especially at this time.

If it hadn't been for your photos on the blog I wouldn't have known that there were allotments in Abingdon, and would certainly have assumed that there was a long waiting list. Very inspiring before and after photos!

Pretty Princess is right; many just don't know.. I rest my case!

Interested to know where the seed merchants are in Abingdon. I'm aware that Seeneys sell some but who am I missing ?
