A nice cuppa tea in a new garden shed!

Currently in our allotment we have three shed structures that are in desperate need of demolishing, burning and rebuilding, as they have not been maintained for a good 30 years or so, and are completely unstable and falling apart. Once they have been demolished and the three huge oak trees that are growing, twisting and turning around them have been felled and burned we will be looking to buy a new proper shed!

In a typically British fashion, we are not too worried about using the shed for storage of tools or plant pots, but the main reason we want a shed is to have a place to store a kettle and camping stove so we can make a nice cup of tea whilst we take shelter from the British summer time rain!

Of course, after a while I presume that the shed will become full of clutter and flower pots!

Our plot has quite a few oaks that we are leaving, and we intend to replace them with some fruit trees for shade and wild life, we just need to remove a couple as they are over hanging neighboring plots - looking rather dodgy. .. Needs must and hopefully we will be improving the habitat.

Shedism became all the rage on my dads allotment...everyone trying to outdo everyone else by customising their sheds using parts of disused sheds. My dad even had a veranda linking two sheds together..

My husband has a fascination for building sheds. Everything could easily fit in the big shed, but he has to keep building. Right now the garden implements are leaned up against the shower so I foresee another shed soon.

Finally the end result that matters which would provide a place for your cuppa :)

A happy ending is always accompanied by a cuppa!

My potting shed has a coffee pot in it. I love to sit there and look at the garden in the morning. Of course I also spend a lot of time getting plants ready for the garden and reading seed catalogues.
