Annoying Occurrence at the allotment
Tuesday, 17 Mar 09 Sunny 18°C / 64°F
I arrived at the allotment this morning to find the padlock for the shed lying in two parts on the path. Our vandals are obviously back. Several other sheds had been entered but not broken into as the plot holders have decided that locks are a waste of time. There was minimal disturbance and the only thing that was missing was old track pump that I used to keep the wheelbarrow tyre inflated.
I called 101 and reported it and two officers came out. They couldn’t do anything much but at least the incident is in their statistics and if the problem escalates they may be able to do something.
Apart from that, I emptied the shed to lighten it and two of us were able to push it back some six inches, Two ladies,who run the plot beside us had objected to its position as the door opened a couple of mm over their patch and, they claimed it was difficult to manoeuvre a wheelbarrow past it. However, I and others had no difficulty.
They had retaliated by building an ugly fence that made it impossible for us to open the door fully and also had steel poles holding it up. Worryingly, these were at a height that we could have an eye out if we’d stumbled coming out of the shed.
However, half an hour of work to move the shed was worth it to keep the peace.
Apart from that annoyance I finished preparing the brassica bed and the roots bed. I also finished planting the onion sets.
Meg covered the PSB with netting on Sunday, to keep of the pigeons and we should be able to pick some by the weekend.
