Greg Becker's 2014 illustrated allotment diary. A personal visual record of the triumphs and trials of an artist and vegetable gardener. Detailing the ongoing struggles with pests, the weather, low flying golf balls, and a fear of deep digging.
really nice to see the video of the real plot that inspires your drawings - and the real Greg of course :o)
the drawings are also inspired by looking at other peoples plots and allotment blogs (definitely including yours). Hopefully one day other artists will in turn be inspired by looking at plot 52, and think 'This guy can not draw squirrels, and his frogs look slightly manic! - I can do much better'
Just had a huge downpour so l can imagine a similar scene going on out there right now complete with a few slugs and snails who will positively love this wet weather. Good to see you on the Guardian Blog.
