Allotment Chic

I recently went to hang out with some friends of mine on their allotment. A British tradition for allowing suburban dwellers a chance to escape with their own piece of land, a tradition which had previously passed me by. In recent years 'The Good Life' self sufficiency has come back in a big way. Many people out there are not only thinking and living green but they are actually making it cool. If you are lucky enough to find a plot (2 or 3 year waiting lists are normal procedure) you should snap up the chance. Just imagine yourself in your wellies, sun light trying to penetrate your shades, whilst you while away your time, sitting on your piece of land, in the midst of urban life, admiring your strawberries. Cup of tea and a fresh cucumber sandwich anyone?
