Chicky the greenhouse is for the allotment, this crow bar broke was basking a pallet when it happened, was a good one I still have the head bit but not easy to use like that other end still useable flat end

WonkyWomble only very small when wombles were on can't remember much they liked collecting stuff asked mum they make stuff out of what they collected sound about right - my pallet projects will be a fence for the allotment plot, a screen box for the station water butt maybe a bench for the allotment but think it will be a while by the time they get sorted

Station looking good went to sort out rubbish today lots of foxgloves

We had meat ball for tea yummy   

Night all

Hi been to station so many foxgloves in the garden it looks great

Went on a skip trawl for pallet top bits for a fence found 1 that was it - but then as a large pile of bits was allowed to get anything I wanted,  got some large bits of wood varying in sizes, bits of plastic and got 2 shelves and a chair which will be great for the shed just needs repairing and a clean

Think about making my own shed still unsure  

Fruitcake how are you chickens?

Been to the allotment today went into the shop for plastic sheeting to cover the bits of bubble wrapped gh glass at home got that and got offered potatoes for the allotment plot for free so got some (a bag) as they had loads left and were only going to bin them if not   First early Winston

Finished off digging the first row of metre squares - that is now 12 metres across which is great,   then got the potatoes in two rows

Today been dismantling the greenhouse, well all the glass came away in one piece there was one bit broken when they wanted to give it away  - will eventually go to the allotment plot

Took quite a few hours but lucky it was nice and sunny, measured it all first as council need measurements - took pics and done a plan drawing where/ what side labelled,  - bubbled wrapped glass with a few pieces in one bit, labelled as much as I could with masking tape and pen, dad and other man did most of the dismantling, I was doing labelling and bubble wrapping all got home safely now in bottom of garden in bits on the floor covered with tar palling     

Even got two free tree stumps which I will use for seats - from one of there friends as he tried to go to the tip but 6 feet trailer no go unless he pays so did not and I got some bits cleared a bit of his trailer

BizzieB you sound super busy great pics, your soil is looking pretty good

Ginagibbs I try food more if I grow it some times even if I don't like the stuff like lettuce prefer red but eat if home grown - normally find more ok that way
