Cycle Day #5 of 75 – Another Short One

Needed to visit the Lottie (allotment) again today to check for any damage after yesterdays heavy rain and strong winds that came in during the afternoon.

Once again I would take a ‘scenic’ route, so first off it was out to Drayton.

East door Drayton parish church.

Entrance gate to church/ churchyard, the brass plaque commemorates those lost in WW1.

Heading to Sutton Courtenay, the crops are in and staw bedding stacked ready for winter use.

Ginge Brook, Sutton Courtenay.


The Lottie withstood yesterdays weather really well.

From here it was off home.

Distance – 10 miles

Journey – Solo

Bike – Tifosi Classico

    That’s an impressive shed/greenhouse/building DJG – and that’s a lot of green stuff on Lottie. Just having toured through western NSW it just doesn’t look real!!

      We like to call it a poly tunnel Tony, I built it around four years ago, and pretty productive it is.
      Not much in the way of green stuff in NSW from what I gather, hope it breaks soon.

    Most of the harvested hay/straw I see around here are now in rolls rather than squares. I always like seeing the squares for some reason. I will hazard a guess that an allotment is similar to our “Pea Patch” where one can grow veggies in a plot that they do not own? Or do you own an are for a garden away from your home?
    I enjoy your photos.

      We have quite a lots of round bales, though I think square/oblongs stack better.
      We rent our Lottie for the equivalent of US$19 a year, we have had it for eight years now, though not a standard size plot it measures 70 ft x 45 ft.

      When I got to the end of the stack, I found that the top three or four bales had rolled off onto the ground.
