Hello Ginagibbs, It may well be new little muck boot wellies for me this year as I have a cut in one which has got a bit bigger as I keep bending down and wear them a lot 

Nearly sowed seeds today but had to much other stuff to do

Sounds a good idea to warm up the soil, I still have wallflower that needs moving up to the train station garden in my veg patch ended up being a bit of a nursery bed

Is there a way you could bring it indoors, I had one in a sheltered spot outside the year before last and lost it

If it has gone brown all the way down I would say you may have lost it, but worth putting it indoors if you can and see if anything new starts growing

I got show perfection peas to grow this year from the potato day so will try and grow them like Jo Jo off the big allotment challenge

Woo2 good you got some fruit bushes even if you got extras, good to get water butts and on a Sunday delivery  

Fruitcake sound good idea to dig down to put chicken wire in got to protect those chickens when you get them, what colour wellies?

Zoomer44 great for a pile of wood chippings, are you making your main path out of bricks?  

Weyplotter I guess around rent paying time you do get some that don't pay so plots could become available

I wanted to see how far down the list I have moved got a reply today from my email but the system does not keep record of what number you were when you started on the list so it could still be 3 months to wait

Hello all

Do have a heater in living room and a small little noisy one as well that you plug in but some times hot bottles are better  

Bekkie is the bio dynamic thing planting by the moon?  what size allotment did you have?

I am thinking of sowing some seeds today will go on the window in my room in small trays

We have not had snow in this area only frost - so it was nice when I went to whitchurch for the potato day and saw it on areas

Hello Woody is not fair on us - trying to keep it lit is not easy even if I do garden all year around nice to be warm inside and not having hot water horrible

It will be trying to keep under the duvet or dooner as Australians say to keep warn with bottles   

Thanks Bekkie try some spuds this you know you want to

Remember to grow sunflowers as this year is the year of the sunflower
