Right now joslow before this gets silly i did NOT ask anybody to become a T,leaf obviously you have to ask for  the bread trays,our bread shop is actually a bakery and farm shop so no high horses please just use common sense if that's not asking too much in this day and age as mi dad used to say "you cant help folk sometimes" perhaps ill take his advise and keep to myself  good luck all

Hi everybody iv just finished sieving a raised plot on the garden to see if it helps,i copied the allotmenteer next patch  to me, i put 4 legs of rubish timber round a plastic bread tray that  you see everywhere and fastened the tray to it and used it as a sieve, just standing it on the bed and piling soil into it and shacking it a bit it worked a treat and the soil is just so light and easy to turn over and use ,so iv built  a stronger one and works a treat thought somebody might be interested

Cheers Alan4711
