A hole in the fence

I found one in the fence between the alley behind my house and the alltoments. As the crow flies, my plot is about 20 paces from my back gate but a five minute walk round the block to the gate. The hole will be very handy for putting seed trays through...

I'm hoping that the trees at the bottom of the plot will be fruit bearing and that once I've cut out all the dead branches, I will have a mini orchard. My allotment neighbour pointed out a damson tree that's on no-ones's plot, so a free for all. That has lots of beautiful blossom on it, so hopefully will come in handy for some jam. He detailed all the jam his wife made last summer. Lots and lots.
