"I love growing exciting and new crops at the allotment. Although I take my work very seriously I have lots of fun along the way."

The story so far…

Hi, I'm Lexi. Actually my full name is Alexandra Jary.

My family and I got Plot 24 (our humble allotment) in the early spring of 2012. It's fair to say it was a bit of a mess. Bindweed everywhere and hard London soil that was like a big solid slab of clay. We all worked very hard for four whole months – turning over the soil, removing the weeds and breaking up the clay with big pick forks. It took a lot of time, effort and muddy clothes but finally our plot was ready for planting!
