I applied for a plot at my village allotments yesterday, I’m really excited and nervous for some strange reason! My name has been placed on a very short waiting list so fingers crossed I’m offered a plot soon. The allotments are brand new, everyone in the village had an opportunity to get a plot but I held back not wanting to rush in because I felt guilty for the growing space that I have in my garden, instead I waited until everyone in the village had a chance.
Now that I’m on the waiting list for a plot I don’t feel so greedy and it feels fair to me. I really want to be part of the allotment community, make new friends and learn a thing or two. I’m slightly worried that I might be taking on more than I can handle but nothing ventured nothing gained.
