Building Raised beds

For the last year or so I’ve been building raised beds at the allotment, so I thought I’d go over how I go about making these beds out of reclaimed decking.

VIDEO: Allotment Bonfires

I love to have a bonfire every now and then, they’re a great way to get rid of waste – however, they may not be everyone’s cup of tea..

Foxes – friend or foe?

If you walk around the the Knollmead Allotments on a sunny afternoon, you’ll be sure to spot at least one fox, maybe even two.

Genuinely, I find them a real delight to watch as they scurry around playing, hunting and generally being fox like.

I managed to capture the footage below.

Like most things wildlife, foxes produce moments that are rare and unique.

I’ve been away from the allotment for approximately three weeks and I’ve returned back to the UK just last night.
