Olympic allotments

allot wide

One of my friends lives in a block of flats overlooking the Olympic park and I was very excited to get a glimpse of the new allotments being created on the site now that the Olympics has gone away.

Everyone gets their own shed – good. However, at the moment the site looks a bit like a scene from the never made film The Stepford Allotments. There is something a bit unnatural about an allotment that looks so uniform. No doubt this will change when the plot-holders move in. I hope they paint the Stepford Sheds bright colours. Maybe they will be influenced  by the history of the site and be hyper-competitive.
