That is Flighty’s plot

Following on from from last Sunday’s post here is the bottom half of the plot, showing the other two vegetable patches.

The old metal dustbin gets used occasionally as an incinerator, and to the right of it are the comfrey plants and behind them the raspberry bushes.  Over on the left are some nasturtiums and a clump of crocosmia.  This patch will be where I’ll be growing potatoes next year.

The other,  smaller patch will be used to grow broad, French climbing and runner beans along with the sweetcorn.  Over by the western boundary path, between the two patches is the log pile and washing up bowl pond.  The rosebay willowherb, teasels and more nasturtiums grow there.

The picture below shows the shed and compost bin area.

From left to right there’s the dog rose, the blackthorn which has grown up through the pallet patio, the sentry box shed, stored bamboo canes and log seat,  compost bin and rose Pretty Lady.  There’s also a grape vine which covers the back of the shed in summer. Behind all these is the eastern boundary path which runs north to south. Hidden at the base of the rose is Fox Junior, and to his right are some pot marigolds.   The bottom left area will be the new  sunflower patch, which I mentioned last week.

And that is Flighty’s plot, officially Plot 124A a half plot measuring around thirty by sixty feet which I’ll have had ten years next year.

Have a good week!

  2. CJ says:

    Lovely to see all the way round Flighty. I particularly love your compost box. Everything is so beautifully neat. A great achievement to have had it for nearly ten years. CJ xx

  3. Liz says:

    That was a good tour. Thank you! Pretty Lady is much taller than I thought. Your soil looks wonderful, a testament to your compost replenishment these past nine years!

    • Flighty says:

      Liz I’m glad you liked it. You’re most welcome. I can just about reach the top of the rose to prune it. Thanks, that’s probably been as important a job as any on the plot. xx

    Looks like you’re well ahead with those dug beds. You look all prepared for the next season.

  5. Jo says:

    You’ve done a great job with the plot. I bet after ten years you couldn’t imagine being without it now. Lovely to see the beautiful willow in the background there.

  6. Great job Flighty. Ten years is quite an achievement and shows your dedication.

    Your plot is lovely, quite delightful now, how much more lovely must it be when everything is blooming and growing. Rotating your potato areas is good ground husbandry. XX

    Looking very neat and tidy, you look like you are all ready for the winter. Ten years is great going and I bet every year has been different. The joy of growing your own.

  9. Things are looking very spick and span, Flighty.

    Looks a fantastic plot. I’m interested in that washing up bowl pond!!

    • Flighty says:

      Allotmental. thanks. I’ve seen frogs, had birds bathing and a fox drinking from it. The other pond is an upturned plastic dustbin lid. All plots should have a pond.

    I’ve always liked that little shed — perfect size for all you need and nothing you don’t!

  12. Jo says:

    It all looks very neat and tidy. We had a big clear up yesterday and Mike entertained himself with a bonfire x

  13. karen says:

    10 years is quite an achievement Mike. It’s all looking wonderful. I like the idea of leaving teasels and willowherb for the wildlife. I’ve got a spare washing up bowl. I haven’t got a pond on my veg plot, so I will copy that idea. And it won’t cost me anything. All the best Mike xxx
