Roy - I know I am making your list longer don't need to rush though

I have been building the coldframe for a good week now, but took apart the pallet planks to use ages ago just trying to get it done, think big wind coming in on Thursday and I need the plastic gh down before it gets really damaged.   

It is one of my pallet projects

The plot he got was really good those shed and paths a bit done and nice soil

How is your plot Roy?  any pics

Zoomer when is the other plot going was it January or February?  - garden tools then that is good  

2015, here we come!

Well I have brought it back indoors yesterday and got the weed matting attached to the bottom of the coldframe and now have the hinges on the lid

Only a few bits to go and it will be ready

Hello all

GemmaJF Like the sound of your bench and seed trays - what will you start growing?

Been in garden filling compost bin, watching birds gave robin meal worms - 4 degrees out there when I went out still nice out and sunny and 3 degrees when I came back in.

I sat watching birds it was so quiet out then the birds started flying it with there chirping and then noise next to me in the pampas grass think that is where the rats may be put bit food on floor see if any thing came out but no, carried on watching birds small bit more and came back in

Sort out hinges on cold frame soon   

Have to sort out how to store my dahlias tubers to go into the coldframe for over wintering

New allotment OMG...
