you could hire a Rotavator this will clear your ground more quickly and should help level off your ground too

So many companies have them look for ones local to you, here is one company that hires out equipment

But remember that ones you do that it is good to cover up areas either with cardboard, weed matting or plants to stop the weeds coming back so quick  

New allotment OMG...

Hello Chunk and welcome

GWRS your plot looks great nice pathways, your sweetcorn got nice and tall so many on the allotments I applied for a plot don't really have them tall

Good to have projects going on

Beechgrove this week I just watched it has a bit on the allotments very worth a watch

Hello all

Been to Sholing valley study centre doing our volunteering this morning helped paint 2 large gazebos with waterproofer  

When home did more painting on Woody's small house, done some house cleaning  

Planted out some pansy plants and sweet Williams and a blue delphinium plant, pruned down all old flower stalks in bee and butterfly border  

Clarington did you pinch the van from Stacey Docherty

Hello all, went to the allotment shop today had a look around more pics on allotment thread

This is the large bale of straw I brought, from the allotment shop - weighs a lot and it is about 2" shorter than my shoulders brought it to mix in with the horse manure as it is too wet

Collected the pallets today from the station

great harvest in green house
