Each year we invite all our allotment owners to keep a diary of the work and activities undertaken on their allotment. The diaries may contain the following information which we hope will be helpful if you are a plot owner or will inspire you to take up an allotment and grow your own organic fruit and vegetables:

An example of items to include in the dairies is as follows

Hours spent working – weeding, digging, clearing, path laying, making raised beds, putting up shed/glass house etc.

A record of costs involved – seeds, plants etc.

What was planted – flowers, vegetables, fruit

Harvesting – weight of produce and comparisons with what a similar amount would cost in your local supermarket

Recipies – some plot owners include their favourite recipes to help you make the most from your delicious produce.
