As you all well know my fence was put up last week and I am so happy with it. It protects my crops from those pesky deer aswell as making it feel like my very own little garden. I am going to be making a bunting to go around the top of the wooden fence posts, 1: to stop the deer leaning over the fence and nibbling my climbing beans, and 2: because it will look pretty! I will be making it out of oilcloth material so that it is weatherproof and therefore should last me a fairly long time. But first of all I just had to officially name my lottie.
I used an old welsh slate tile and simply drilled some holes into it and screwed it securely to my pallet gate. I also used a waterproof chalk pen to write with so that the rain won’t wash it away. I think it looks perfectly rustic and suits my little lottie down to a tee and the best thing about it? It only cost me 50p! Now I’m the only allotment on our site with an official (handmade) plot number sign, it doesnt really need it but I thought that it would look nice, and I do like it when things look nice 🙂
