Yes. No shed.

Today I've something slightly different. You may recall we don't have a shed on our allotment and haven't worked out how we can get one either. There's no doubt that it would be handy, but right now it's not at the top of my spending priority list (that's a mental list I have, another one!) So when I saw that Asgard were running a competition to win a shed, I was very tempted.

To enter - and win, because there's no point entering to take part is there - I needed to write a poem about sheds or my love of gardening. I almost gave up, but then I remembered how much easier it would be to have a shed on the allotment.

There'd definitely be a lot less carrying, that's for sure!

Yes. No shed.

There once was an overgrown allotment
it had grass right up to here.
The plot owners despaired
as they looked for their shed
And then realised it just wasn’t there.

No shed they said, no shed
Where would they store their tools?
So onto the internet they went
and then gasped when they realised
just how much they nearly spent.

So saving their pennies and tending their plot
they managed without a shed.
No shed for their pots.
No shed for their spades.
No shed to stand in even when it rained.
Yes. No Shed.
But they did have some very lovely veg!

 

So wish me luck, and I promise if I win I'll give you a tour!
