Wise Words on Sheds

Since our allotment site opened three years ago, many allotmenteers have put plaques on their sheds and signs have appeared in all sorts of places. Words of wisdom and humour!

Let’s take a wander and see what we can find.

I fixed this quote to the side of one of our communal buildlings. it is very popular with visitors.
Could be true!
Lovely sentiment.
Memories of "The Good Life".
No weeds on this plot!
So true!
We can't argue with that!
Even the site's manure wheelbarrow and a breeze block have signs.
I wonder what goes in that barrow?
Dave's welcoming sign.
Fred's impressive door furniture.

Two youngsters, Ethan and Elliot, seem to have forgotten their Mum, Mandy, when they made their sign. Mandy’s plant labels are so attractive and original.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

Thanks for such a great post. I love all the signs, but must admit I like yours best. I have a big barn – if I was younger I might climb up and paint that on it.
