About Lotek Life

Welcome to Lotek Life, this is where I document the things I’m doing in my garden particularly converting my wasteland into a beautiful allotment.

Lotek Life is purely for my own pleasure – in that same narcissistic way that musicians ‘only write songs for themselves’. So yes this website is for my own pleasure but I’m also a writer and acutely aware this blog is public to whoever is mad enough to read it.

So I hope that you, dear reader, get something out of it.

Harvest report

Each year I track how much harvest I’ve collected from each plant.
