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

Been to the allotment today dug another good metre now - dug up but far down in soil a house hold fork, saw someone else come in with a trailer with a chicken house in, that will be a few plots away from mine

For some reason it smelt like TCP in the air smelly don't know why

Spotted a blue bell or white bell flower

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
