This is a little bit sad, but I need to share it with you. Today was my last official day on my allotment plots. After 11 years I am leaving because we are moving house very soon. Don’t panic I will return, but it may be a couple of months before you see me again. We are moving a distance away from where we live at the moment, but in our new place we will have a much larger garden, and Mark and the kids have told me that I can do what ever I like with it. I love them all so very much. They clearly know how much gardening means to me. Let mum garden, it keeps her calm!
So for one last time from my allotment plots in Surrey here goes. Thank you for watching and commenting you really have made it more fun than I could ever have imagined it to be. I would also like to thank everyone on the allotment site. I have made so many wonderful friends and we have swapped so many stories and information, I will miss you all very much indeed.
Next time I see you, I’ll be in my new garden, and I’m hoping that you will join me there, not actually in the garden itself, but via the magic of You Tube!!
Subscribe to my HERE for my FREE newsletter and I also how ebooks available, so if you would like to know how to grow Potatoes or Onions I can help.
Claire I have enjoyed your videos so much over the years. I want to wish you all the best for yourself and your family. Good luck wit the move. It won’t be long before you will be putting your creative touch in your new garden. Beginning a new chapter.
All the very best!
It’s very exciting to move, we’ve been planning this for so long. If I’m like this when I leave the allotment after 11 years, what am I going to be like leaving the cosy square were we’ve lived for 16 years? I’m dreading saying goodbye to my fellow bellringers, I’ve been ringing in the same tower for 30 years!! Might have to buy lots of tissues.
You will soon get the new place just the way you want it Claire.
Hope you managed to save and transfer some of your old favourite plants and fruit bushes from the old place.
Wishing you and your family well in your new home
Thank you. I’ll keep you posted on our move and give you a tour once we move in.
Your videos are an inspiration! I will be waiting and looking out for your new venture.Good luck with the move.
Thanks Ian. Hopefully it won’t be long before we’re in our new home and I’m back in the garden.
So Claire, keep all the good moments, the knowledge, your achievements on this allotment in your heart!! Go now for new adventures in a new location! Having a big garden along with the new house, is a privilege!! I wish to you and your lovely family all the best!! Waiting for many new posts and videos!!
Thanks Irene. Once we get in then it’ll be all systems go. I’ll keep you posted.
ok ….i understand ….wow,,,,things are happening
Ah sad to leave your allotment but it sounds like you will have your very own garden in your yard…
Good luck and feel free to check in about moving…. a video on that could be insightful.
The move will be busy enough, adding filming to it as well will be chaotic. I will take a photo of our place as we leave. And I’ll keep tweeting as the day goes along.
Shame & sad but when “one door closes, another doors opens”
Perhaps on the new plot a chance to implement a U-Bend shaped “open book planting bed”
Or erect a lighter Heras panel lean-to polytunnel
Have enjoyed your videos, you are a natural in front of the camera.
All the best for the move “emotional time…”
Once we’ve moved in then I’ll start making videos again.
ok ……will look forward to it…..
