The view from my plot.
100 square metres (119.6 square yards) is the area of my new allotment.
It is located close to Windgates, between the towns of Bray and Greystones in County Wicklow, Ireland. My plot is one of fifteen sitting on the side of a gently sloping hill with wonderful views of the suburbs of Bray and the Little Sugar Loaf mountain (also known as Giolspar in Irish and Giltspur in English). A glimpse of Dublin Bay can be seen to the east on a clear day.
The plan is to record my progress on the allotment and show how its produce is put to use.
Let’s see how it goes!

Fantastic location for an Allotment. Theres a bit of work to do but no doubt Val will make it work. Peadar would be so proud of you. Good luck with your new venture. GC
Cheers Gavin, I must admit that the blogging is more of a challenge to me at the moment, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. Val
Lovely tree Val – hornbeam or beech? Good luck with it all – it’s a good time in the year to get started. your views look as fab as mine – difficult to do any work as just stand gawping!
Hi Julia, not sure what the tree is – but I’m looking forward to the Spring when all will be revealed! Thanks for visiting! Val.
