Hello I’m Karen, thank you for the interest in my allotment blog. I’ve had an allotment since 2011 and currently have 2 plots backing on to each other. The allotment site is small and friendly, nestled right in the heart of a small rural village in Bedfordshire. I’m totally hooked on growing food and use the ‘no dig’ approach to gardening. The aim of this blog is to document the growing year on my allotments, share the ups and downs of allotment life and hopefully inspire others to get an allotment too. I also keep chickens which I have done for over 15 years, I enjoy sharing my knowledge of chicken keeping on the blog.
