New allotment OMG...

Posted: Yesterday at 20:14

I have been helping volunteering to tidy up Millers pond park and found a golf ball, that is a few I have now so maybe I will add a crazy golf course to my allotment when I get it

Roy that is it wildlife on your plot

Thanks Zoomer44 I see B&Q got you with buying module trays but a least it is some thing useful, thanks for the spud info

I use Bordeaux for my peach tree to stop it getting peach leave curl

Hello all,

Been doing volunteering at Sholing Valley Study Centre today tidying up lots of litter picked up from the around Millers Pond ground and a whole bag of drink cans made the place look a lot better

GWRS you just need the weather to warm up a small bit so not to hurt yourself when digging, I expect it was nice to go to your allotment

good that you got fence sorted

Hello all, done my bird count not as many bird as normal, put more food out before doing the count as some had gone in two days, results on bird thread - was very cold sitting out in the garden for the hour,  as my bird feeders can't be seen from the house well

Later been to the station sorted out rubbish and bags of tin cans

Roy good if there are other on your site, the weather effects it, you get blight from hot weather then lots of wet I think and more on main crop potatoes, you should be fine growing in bags with fresh compost  

only one week and I will have brought my potatoes -  some for bags and some for a raised bed  - not sure what ones I will get
