Caral that is great, is he the one that did not do gardening but you got a plot then interest started or am I thinking of someone else, great no waiting list and you can pick a plot

What will he grow will it be his stuff on one plot and yours on the other or will it be a joint venture?  

Thanks all very windy weather today really blowing went to the allotment done another metre square, loads of stuff blowing around there, where it had rained last night the soil was a bit more crumbly to get off the weeds was up there a few hours then home for lunch 

GWRS no shed and sitting area on path floor between plots at mo, lot of weeds brambles and bits on the plot to get rid of -think I want to make a pallet bench a different style to the one in the garden Youtube have one I like

What do any of you have around the edge of the plot on the floor? 

Think I have leather jacket grubs trying to chuck them out with the weeds in the green bin, found a moth pupa looks a good size one

Hey all thanks for the advise and tips, I went though all bits about the plots - and I decided...................... on the first plot, I felt more inspired and comfortable there think I just needed to look at another plot to help make up my mind, so I signed up and paid the £30 deposit for the plot now it is all mine

Today I went to the allotment put in some markers on my plot for where quarter and half the plot is so I know when I get that far in digging,  me and mum managed to dig a metre square got out some rubbish and weeds 

If tomorrow weather ok will go do more digging 

Zoomer44 a rod is 25 metres square not sure what in feet

Ginagibbs you will have to see if she uses the compost bin and comes back to carry on
