Thank you Busy-Lizzie, It's lovely to get a positive response. thanks again. I had a single plot and wanted an adjoining one that had been neglected but for which the rent had been paid. At about the same time as it did become available I got a call from the secretary Diane, to say that it was available, but that in the circumstance this triple would be a better bet for me, the circumstances being that I had a hip replacement in early November. I'm mobile but have to be careful.
I took it immediately, my wife ws not too enthusiatic initially, as I had seen Dennis and his wife put in hours and hours of work in the preparation, even down to riddling the soil in each bed. It's a shame that they had to give it up it up. My original plot is only a couple of allotments from them and I used to rib them about the work they were putting in.
I have a small greenhouse in the house garden and the seeds arrived yesterday, so once the weather improves I'll be up and at it - with heavy stuff being delegated to the family for the next few months, if they want to eat the stuff, they can help grow it.
