Bring together any observations from the allotments. The colourful map shows the height across the allotments in metres above sea level, I took 1475 individual spot height readings then contoured them to produce the map. I had always wondered why our plants suffered more from frost damage than plants in other areas and it is clear from this map that the red (lower) areas are a frost pocket, unfortunately our plot is in this area. On still nights the cold air runs down from the higher areas and pools in the red areas, the higher areas to the east are subject to more wind, again a very noticeable factor if you go there regularly to dig the soil.
