One Reason why a Path on an Allotment is Useful.
Having paths on an allotment once seemed a bit of a luxury but they are useful. This is the first winter we have had a couple of pathways made from garden slabs*. This has made it easier for us when we want to work on the allotment on the odd dry days that we are getting between the wet ones.
A pathway means that we can remove weeds from some areas of the plot without walking on the soil and compacting it. I am not saying that we never walk on the soil on the allotment it just means that we have been able to reduce the amount of time we spend trampling on it.
*The path was made from unwanted old concrete slabs that a relative was discarding after having a garden improved.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
