Mr Immaculate Allotment Holder.

Time for another allotment character folks.  Don't worry there aren't many left unless I make up some more?

If local radio had allotment correspondents this man would write it and say something like the following:  

"The Leeks are growing in a north to south direction and my Savoy cabbages have got Finger and Toe disease.  Did I tell you I bought a new rake?"  

Mr Immaculate Allotment Holder is very methodical.  He only cares about his allotment being neat and tidy.  Every fruit and vegetable is planted in a regimental line.  It must be when he joined the Salvation Army and served his country back in the days of National Services or in his case, Services?  He use to play lead electric triangle in the band.  It was this experience that made him methodical and regimental.  Everything is planted in a straight line.  Rather like trees on a golf course fairway.  

Nature does not work in straight lines.  It likes to ebb and flow and meander and self seed in a patched quilt of a Cottage garden way.  Mr Immaculate Plot Holder lives and breathes: STRAIGHT lines.

His allotment is immaculate.  Hs garden shed wears a resplendent army green annual coat of paint.  His allotment entrance is an hardwood teak front door with a letter box and brass polished numbers 22 Acacia Avenue (Iron Maiden song) resplendently polished with Brasso ("clean your buttons with Brasso") and gleaming in the sun.

Mr Immaculate Allotment Holders allotment is organised and set like the control room of an aircraft carrier.  His anorak is grey and the same colour of a Royal Navy battleship.  Every one of his fruit and vegetables are accurately spaced between itself and the next fruit or vegetable.  Seven seeds or vegetable plants to every row.  Seven is the number.  The magic number.  Bees have seven body parts and their hive is split into seven sections.  They even fly in a number seven formation.  Everybody knows number seven is God's number and that is the number he adheres and regimen-tally sticks to.  

Mr Immaculate Allotment Holder never purchases or places any animal manure on his allotment.  He believes cow manure to be a 'cold' manure and never heats up to kill any pernicious weed seeds.  Horse manure is full of oats and they germinate and grow everywhere.  He gets very few weeds because he doesn't add manure or compost to his allotment soil.  He hoes rain or shine and shine or rain again.    His fruit and vegetables upon harvesting are always small and puny.  But they are immaculately tended.  His allotment is immaculate and he is a very boring man! 

Another character tomorrow.  I need to invent some more.  The blog writer perhaps?  Apparently there are over 350 million active blogs in the world.  Three hundred and fifty million writers is an incredible statistic.  

Wonder how many blog writers grow vegetables and dream about Britney Spears or Pamela Anderson swimming in Bantry Bay and walking on the beach in her swimsuit and I am collecting seaweed and I ask her if she wants to come back to our house for a brew and I will show her my polytunnel? How's that for a vivid imagination?

  1. He'd have apoplexy if he saw my 'straight lines' of veg, our overflowing compost heap, the (as yet) untrimmed roses! Mind you, my husband had an uncle who would physically remove all the thorns from the roses "in case the children hurt themselves"!!

  2. Me too. Not I can get on the veg plot at the moment. When this Covid business is ever over I am going to fly away and live somewhere warmer at least for the winter.

    Your husband's uncle sounds very sensible and he knew what children can be like in a garden.

  3. I saw quite a few tidy allotments on my walk yesterday. Perhaps it is one of their rules, no mess!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Not the Allotment Police? I suppose one of the plusses of owning your own veg plot is not having to adhere to the rules and regulations of the allotment committee? I do miss the camaraderie and Mickey taking you get when you rent an allotment. Thanks JayCee.

  5. I hate to ask, but do you grow mushrooms in those polytunnels? Not asking for any particular reason...

  6. Only the magic kind Debby.😀 No drugs here. It's full of Japanese onions in fish boxes and shrub cuttings in plant pots. I found the fish boxes on the beaches.

  7. Poor Britney and Pamela! They have no idea what terrible fate awaits them when they agree to visit O'Northsider's sheep shed. Their mothers should have warned them not go off with strangers.

    Another allotment dweller might be Mr Recycle-it-All whose allotment and allotment shed are living symbols of his recycling ingenuity with old baths, advertising hoardings, rescued drainage pipes, corrugated iron sheets etcetera and he didn't have to spend a penny on any of it. Mind you - it looks like Steptoes' Yard!

  8. Britney and Pamela would be made very welcome to little ould Oireland YP.

    I once had an allotment next to Mr Recycle it All. He had old lumps of concrete to hold the corrugated sheeting down on his shed, a Asda supermarket to dry his onions, a polytunnel made from plastic water pipes and old polythene and his raised beds and fences were made from old pallets. I love allotment Art Itecture. They are works of art in themselves.

    1. I have taken quite a few photos of allotments. The men - and it is mostly men - who tend allotments never stop for a moment to think of the "look" of their work. That ramshackle quality is appealing to me.

      I am sure you would make Britney and Pamela very welcome in your Irish-Portuguese polytunnel. You might even show them how to handle a dibber properly before teaching them all you know about fertilisation. After all, you are a very kindly chap.

  9. Please post them on your blog YP. I have wrote a few blogs about allotment Art-itecture. Chris Cyprus is a brilliant allotment artist. He's well worth googling and he's even been featured on here and Gardeners World.

    I would keep them well fed and watered and warm like my plants. I am still waiting to go walking on the hills with Julia Bradbury.

  10. Ha-Ha. Julia was born in Ireland and grew up near you in Derbyshire. I watched a programme about her "doing up"(renovating) a terraced house she bought in Portugal. I wonder if there are any allotments or Fincas near by? Walking with Julia and drinking Super Bock and Sangria would be just the ticket.

  13. I had a neighbour who was distressed about her pear trees. Their branches kept drooping instead of growing like proper trees. Apparently she only liked proper trees which to her was a monkey puzzle, all neat and tidy. She also nearly had a heart attack about us gardening on a sunday and she could here a lawn mower. We lived in detached houses with large gardens surrounding them.

  14. Thanks walking in beauty carmarthenshire. Your detached house neighbour sounds a character. Thanks for telling us about her. It's horrible and wet here on the Irish Riviera today. It's days like this when you appreciate having a polytunnel.

  15. A LITTLE ACT OF KINDNESS CAN MAKE YOU REMEMBERED FOR A LONG TIME. GOD BLESS THE GREAT MIND BEHIND CREATING THIS READING PLATFORM. My problem with herpes type 2 has caused me many traumas, especially in my sexual life. I was so afraid of infecting my Boyfriend, I suffered the embarrassment of visiting dermatologists queries hundreds of times. Unfortunately, they did not find a definitive solution to my problem.The solution came from the least expected place By reading in a forum on the subject, mentioned a method for eliminating herpes simplex virus 2. Many people had tried, with excellent and quick results.I had nothing to lose so I decided to use this method to eliminate my herpes 2. spent 18 days using this method and my herpes type 2 completely disappeared. I recommend this method to all those infected with herpes virus, who want to eliminate the herpes from their body forever. Contact Doctor Razor via his Email : drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com , I recommend his herbal herpes healing method. you can visit his website : https://herbalistrazorherb.wixsite.com/drrazorherbalhome, Whatsapp or Call Doctor Razor Via +2349065420442

  17. I NEVER BELIEVED IN HERBS BUT DOCTOR RAZOR MADE ME A BELIEVER. Massive Gratitude to doctor Razor who got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. I got diagnosed with herpes on , 2017.  I have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Doctor Razor, but I never believed them. I was hurt and depressed, I was too curious and wanted to try Doctor Razor, then I contacted him through his email (drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com) when I contacted him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, I pleaded with him to help me out. I Visited his website :https://herbalistrazorherb.wixsite.com/drrazorherbalhome     My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promised. He sent me his medication and asked me to go for check up after 18 days of taking his herbal medicine. I agreed with him and I took his medication and went for check up, to my greatest surprise my result came out negative after the treatment, I'm really delighted that i'm completely cured and healthy again. I waited for a month to be very sure I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes negative. so i guess it's time i recommend anyone going through Herpes HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, Hepatitis B, Diabetes, Cancer should reach him. EMAIL: drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com. WHATSAPP: +2349065420442  My greatest joy is having back my happiness

  20. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542
