New Spings Allotments
 New Spings Allotments   by Dave (Oy)  (Nikon D700 with Nikon 24-70mm F2.8)
That Angelica on the right is impressive!

Am I right in thinking that these allotments run behind the houses on Wigan Rd,from the Boundary up to the school (I believe St Johns ) that is closed and boarded up?? If so they have been in use for many years, and still can show a good photo.

" Angelica " I thought it was a cauliflower bush.Just shows what I know about gardening.


Comment by Mick on 29th September 2012 at 03:49
Angelica likes it wet so this year will have been good.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 29th September 2012 at 04:53
Nice picture Dave!!! The colours are lovely and yes the Angelica is impressive!!!! Good use of space to grow food to share. Hugh Fernley what's his name would be proud!!! Cheers

My favourite vegetable ia a broad bean.

Our Allotment

We donít get a lot on our allotment,
except for a lot of fat slugs.

They eat such a lot their brains must rot -
a lot of fat slugs on drugs.

No, we donít get a lot on our allotment,
but we sit, sipping tea from our mugs,

and if anything grows in the desolate rows,
we stifle its life with our hugs.

Wigan people are crying out for allotments,nice to see well used ones.

What a homely, cheerful picture; I LOVE allotments!


Comment by Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 29th September 2012 at 12:31
This photo brings back lovely memories of me a youngster going to the allotments in Chapel Lane to get bunches of flowers and veg for my Mam.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 29th September 2012 at 20:22
Hasn`t been a good year for the garden,especially the veggie plot..
had some nice spuds but the plants had died off.

Where have all the birds gone to ??


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 29th September 2012 at 21:52
Jean, I beg to differ as it`s been an exceptional year for growing grass!!
Thank goodness it will shortly be time to put the mower to bed!!
I`ve not given up hope yet for an Indian summer as we`ve had a few in October.


Comment by Mick on 29th September 2012 at 22:53
Jean its been a rubbish year for fruit and veg only veg thats done anything in our garden are the beans.


Comment by Burtspieeeate on 30th September 2012 at 17:31
would make a great scene for a jigsaw puzzle


Comment by Christine Pearson (Gregory) on 15th October 2012 at 11:07
The picture brings back memories! I used to walk through the allotments as a little girl to get to the 'new' road
