    If you're including PTs and other structures, I need to increase my list:-

    3 sheds
    2 garages
    6 GHs used for growing
    1 blowaway sandwiched between a garage and GH, used as a compost, bucket and tool store).
    2 PTs ((cheap green ones)
    1 24' x6 GH frame covered in debris netting
    1 Carport frame with a wood and pondliner roof, used as a log store, with circular saw and log splitter and washing lines hung beneath for drying washing when its raining.
    1 open sided but roofed structure over a garden bench and table

    I'm sure there are more if I think hard enough!

    No shed here, two tunnels and two greenhouses over the plots. We have a lock up for tools, the store has frequent visitors in the night, so mainly used canes and netting.

    This time of year the 8 x 10 greenhouse is used as a place out of the elements and has the normal allotment comforts- gas ring, kettle and a frying pan for bacon sarnies
    Mod with attitude!

    If I divide the length of time I've lived here by my total sheds/PT's (and don't count the small shed built before that) - then the time span works out to roughly one every 5 years - which I don't consider super greedy :-)

    Mrs B's great grandparents lived on their allotment from 1919 - 1938 and raised their three children there. Her grandfathers marriage certificate lists the plot number as his address.
    They lived in the shed and when waking early in the morning it was apparently sometimes easier to climb out the window than try for the door over the sleeping family.

    Three sheds here. Summerhouse type in the garden, used as a home shed (tomato canes, bagged compost, plant pots etc.)
    Tea shed on the lotty made mainly from second hand materials and used for taking it easy..
    Tool shed on the lotty. When we took the plot on we were advised to burn it but a few inexpensive repairs bought it back into decent service. It's used for tools and taking a leak.
    Ideal unisex watering can for taking a lotty leak (thanks for the original idea VC ) https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/...-art-80418589/
