Welcome to PurpleBug

This is to record both successes and failures as I grow on my allotment and I hope that these pages will be an inspiration to those just starting out, or even just thinking of growing edibles.

I’ve had my allotment for just three growing seasons, getting it in March 2015.

Starting out with just a wheelbarrow, spade, a few pallets and a very helpful husband, I dived straight in, keeping it roughly to the layout that the previous owner had employed.
