I sadly missed our community allotment annual bonfire party this year so I was glad to get to visit on a still early winter day, as the trees and plants shed their leaves to feed back into the circle of life. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment.
The next big job for the plot is to prune the two huge trees we inherited, at around 8m tall far exceed the allotment site rules and are actually competing with water, nutrients etc. We plan to reduce them by one third once all the leaves have dropped which indicates the sap is down.
