Caral is there a way of lifting the shed with a few of you and putting some sort of thing under that you could roll the shed along bit by bit,  they sound nice on your site

Fruitcake were they digging up all the plants to leave the allotment and move off or to re do the place, pain when they not been there for so long

GWRS did you get to the allotment today?

Ginagibbs lucky for the people with the chickens for you to talk to

Put up 12 canes in pea bed then sowing peas in pots show perfection trying to do the cordon method and also sowed peas in row trays onward pea and little marvel next cucumbers and courgettes

Yes think you could sow them in Autumn it will make the flowers come out earlier than spring flowering ones,  I used deep root trainers - block of pots that open with no root disturbance like little books

we have a south facing garden and my cold frame faces east

Can I ask when you plant things out do they have to be on the same symbol day/time? 

Like leaf on leaf days and flower on flower days

Thanks Caral

Sounds a good idea to section off the plot,  Good that the person got some spuds planted even with smashed gh glass

Are you planning on going there on the weekend?

You can come chat to other allotment plot holder and ask questions on here
