So, after our 5k Santa Fun Run, we have raised somewhere in the region of £500-£600. A major  company is also matching £300 so that's about £900. Also our Christmas Fete raised £450 so that should be enough for The WildLife Trust to complete our school pond!!!!!!! I'm so happy that we have achieved this... Hard work does pay off sometimes!! 😊😊 (That santa suit was very sweaty...) #santafunrun #5k #5krace #rotaryclub #bulbs4kids #allotment #allotments #allotmentlove #allotmentideas #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #squarefootgardening #squarefootallotment #squarefootgarden #gardeningideas #gardendesign #gardeningnovice #gardeningclub #outdoorlearning @squarefootgardening

The Clementines from @aldiuk  are great, not only tasty for all the family but the box will become really handy come harvesting time at the allotment  #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #allotmentblogger #allotmentideas #allotmenttips #gardeningtips #fruit #clementines #aldifinds #aldi
Day 1 of the big hen cage floor.The wire sheet to stop the rats & most of the slabs are down but the day isn’t long enough to finish it off,a job for another day.The hens now have somewhere dry to stand & an area to scrat.🐔👍🏻 #just_puddle_plot #allotment #allotmentlife🌱 #allotmentuk #vegetablegarden #growingvegetables #growyourownfood #gardenersofinstagram #kitchengarden #ediblegarden #vegpatch #homegrown #instagram  #allotmentideas #agriculture #asiangirls #orientalgirls #urbanveggarden #allotmentnewbies #beginnergardener #1sttimegrower #vegexpert #womengardeners #mengardeners #allotmentmakeover #growyourown #allotmentwork #gardeninglife
It's been a while. Sometimes the allotments at this time of year just looks...brown.  don't you find that?  But here we are planning and researching to have a better second year.  It all looks lovely but...we still have a lot of digging to do on the large allotment, and then there is adding seaweed and manure. But it can only be done one step at a time. . . . #allotments #allotmentlife #allotmentsuk #allotmentideas #growingyourown #growyourownfood

The Garlics that I propagated and photographed earlier this autumn have sprouted in the New Cross garden. No way to tell if the propagation helped them or not, but it sure didn’t kill them. They should be ready for harvest early next summer.  Nothing yet from the school garden garlic - the roots grown during propagation all broke off after a student shook the box they were in... . . . . . . . #garlic #garden #gardening #gardener #gardeningtips #allium #alliums #sprout #sprouts #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #allotmentideas #allotments #gyo #growyourownfood #growyourown #organic #organicgarden #organicgardening #homegrown #wintergarden #success #schoolgarden #teachersofinstagram #teacher
Lettuces grown in the greenhouse of the school garden - as of next week the school will be able to offer organic, homegrown lettuce as part of the school’s lunch options! . . . . . #lettuce #lettuces #greens #salad #salat #salads #garden #gardening #gardens #gardener #gardeners #gardenersworld #allotmentlife #allotment #allotmentlove #allotmentideas #greenhouse #seasonal #seasonalfood #schoolgarden #teacher #sustainable #organic #carbonfootprint #growyourfood #growyourownfood #growyourown #homegrown #homegrownveggies #gyo

The garden allotment in winter (during the build) vs in Summer. I know it’s not a popular opinion, but I bloody love snow! #allotmentlife #allotmentideas #allotmentlove #gardening #garden #growyourownfood #gyo #greenfingers #sunflower #snow #seasons #greenhouse #winterscoming
This is what our plot looked like when we took it over in Aug 2018 the boundaries are where the sheds (not ours) are  We've covered 80% of the plot with weed membrane to try and weaken the couch grass... #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #allotment #allotmentideas #couchgrass #gardening #gardeningtips #garden #organic #kidsonallotments
Exciting times, we've just bought a polytunnel, a basic one at the moment but will give us a foot in the door as they say  This will be well anchored down with 10mm rebar rods 1m in length and the flaps will be dug in to hopefully we won't see it 3 plots down  #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #polytunnel #polytunnellife #organic #gardeningtips #gardening #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentideas

My only remaining garlic bulb to plant this year.Will need a rich well draining compost as garlic doesn’t like water logged or wet soil(good drainage is the key) & a nice sunny position.As most garlic you buy is grown in Spain it doesn’t do really well in cold English climates(despite what the net leads you to believe) so a thick layer of mulch or well rotted compost will keep it warm & protect it from the cold.😃👍🏻 #just_puddle_plot #allotment #allotmentlife🌱 #allotmentuk #vegetablegarden #growingvegetables #growyourownfood #gardenersofinstagram #kitchengarden #ediblegarden #vegpatch #homegrown #instagram  #allotmentideas #agriculture #asiangirls #orientalgirls #urbanveggarden #allotmentnewbies #beginnergardener #1sttimegrower #vegexpert #womengardeners #mengardeners #allotmentmakeover #growyourown #allotmentwork #gardeninglife

Sunday boredom, posting photos of potatoes! 🤣 Actually these are my potatoes, home grown. Didn't plant any this year, but the Earth keeps on giving!!

🌻🌱🍅🌿🍂🍓🌞 Benefits of having an allotment: . -Burns calories and keeps you fit (and much cheaper than the gym!) 🌱 - Gets you outdoors and connects you with nature, giving you more of an appreciation for plants, the seasons, the weather and wildlife. 🌱 - Growing your own produce is cheaper than store bought in the long run. 🌱 - You have control over what exactly goes into your food, including making it organic if you choose. 🌱 - It's as local as it can get - no air miles involved! 🌱 - You can choose from hundreds of varieties so you're not restricted to the one type of tomato or apple available in the supermarkets. 🌱 - It's social and creates a community - allotments can be intergenerational and multicultural, often with a mix of older and younger people and families from different backgrounds. 🌱 - Green spaces are important for our mental health. Studies have shown that loneliness amongst older people is less common in those with allotments. They also teach us about the art of slow living, help us to feel grateful and appreciative, and provide us with space for reflection and personal growth. Physical work can also help to express and expell anger! 🌱 - Encourage local wildlife, helping bees, birds and hedgehogs in particular! 🌱 - Zero waste - inviting us to live sustainably and reuse, repair, and upcycle items that would otherwise be wasted. 🌱 - Teach children to have an interest in nature from an early age and are great spaces for encouraging exploration and messy play. . #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #allotmentideas #natureistherapy #ecoart #getoutside #gardeninglife #gardening #growyourown #growyourownfood #organicvegan #organic #connect #connectwithnature #autumnfeels #treesofinstagram #naturetherapy #naturecrafts #lovetheoutdoors #ecofriendly #sustainableliving #zerowaste #gogreen #crueltyfree #slowliving #eatplants #loveanimalseatplants #plantpowered
So, I've been trying to apply for grants to help with the development of my school pond. So far, nearly all local companies have turned me down... It's been really disheartening... So I've taken the bull by the horns(as it were)... I've convinced my fellow teachers to enter our local Charity Santa Fun Run and asked parents and children to either join in or sponser us. I'm also working with our school charity to raise money through our Christmas Fete. I'm so keen to develop our school Eco Area but so fustrated that no-one else seems to care (big companies etc).... rant over 😊 #allotmentideas #allotmentlove #schoolgardening #schoolallotment #allotmentveg #gardeningclub #pinkfloyd #wishyouwerehere #pinkfloydvinyl
So many possibilities.. some of this wool will be going in my bean trench next year... A great freebie from a colleague  #letsboxclever #allotmentgarden #allotment #gardening #gardeningtips #freebies #reusablewool #environment #allotmentideas #allotmentlife

These dark nights are meaning we have to take the compost out in the dark  #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #allotmentideas #compost #composting #garden #gardening #gardeningtips #uk #family
Today we designed the pattern for our spring flower bed. The children are so excited to get planting! #bulbs4kids #allotment #allotments #allotmentlove #allotmentideas #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #squarefootgardening #squarefootallotment #squarefootgarden #gardeningideas #gardendesign #gardeningnovice #gardeningclub #outdoorlearning @squarefootgardening
So it’s a bit rough around the edges, but the students have successfully built a compost heap for the coming years! Ready to be filled up as of tomorrow and we should have our very own compost by next September. Feeling accomplished.  @brewcrosscoffee - your grounds now have a home! . . . . . . . #gardens #garden #gardening #schoolgarden #teacher #teachers #teachersofinstagram #allotmentlife #allotmentideas #allotments #allotmentlove #recycling #reuse #compostheap #compost #green #homemadecompost #growyourownfood #growyourfood #growyourown #pallet #botchjob
It’s time for me to plant my garlic in 4” pots in the greenhouse.Not for harvesting but to plant under the gooseberry bushes to help prevent gooseberry saw fly during the summer.😃👍🏻 #just_puddle_plot #allotment #allotmentlife🌱 #allotmentuk #vegetablegarden #growingvegetables #growyourownfood #gardenersofinstagram #kitchengarden #ediblegarden #vegpatch #homegrown #instagram  #allotmentideas #agriculture #asiangirls #orientalgirls #urbanveggarden #allotmentnewbies #beginnergardener #1sttimegrower #vegexpert #womengardeners #mengardeners #allotmentmakeover #growyourown #allotmentwork #gardeninglife
Allotment Garlic update. (See previous post!). It appears to be growing! Wow. Still can’t get over the excitement when something starts sprouting!! #allotmentlife #allotmentideas #allotmentlife #garlic #growingthingsmakesmehappy #growingthingsisfun #gardeningisgoodforthesoul
So as predicted...I’ve re designed again! I don’t want box shapes all round and after stalking some other allotments and insta allotments I decided triangles where the way forward! I also quickly realised that I didn’t need to use all the space to plant! That may change but for next year 5 areas to plant is what I’m going to aim for! Exciting 😁😁#allotmentlife #growingveggies #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #allotment #plot109 #learningaswegrow #allotmentlove #allotmentideas #allotmenteering #allotmentnewbies
