Weather was ok here sunny went gardening at station lots of weeding done

thanks Zoomer44  Think I will have to look in Lidl at the shovel think it may be good for horse manure at home and bark chippings if the allotment gets them - need to look at it to decide if I like it and I like the hand cutter as well

Zoomer44 were the new people excited ? 

seeds sowing today as well

Stagbeetle hope you got to your plot

New allotment OMG...

Bekkie some one left a comment on the GH today on T&M theirs kept going flat in the wind and rain

I know that a camping pup tents would not like this weather as you would not use them till later in the year,  so maybe it will be better when weather is warmer and less wind and heavy rain

Have more seats up the station now much better for when it is dry as did not have enough there before (no shelter on those ones as extra seats) 

Needs must with rubbish picking once a week or two as rubbish bins would over flow and it all goes in our green bin as they do not collect it from the station yet

Been to the station collecting rubbish difficult to do in the windy weather when bits try and fly off

Bekkie is it this GH you have   same joints poles as camping pup tents have, do you have stuff in there now?

Chicky good going -  cold out and windy here

Hello all

Bekkie we had substitutions in the online shop today and some not available, Lidl have a cheap ish GH if yours it not too good  and a good lot of gardening gear from Thursday 5th

I got a parcel as well a long purple tube for my hand held dyson with discount

Chicky my snowdrops are in pots waiting to go in ground from garden visit, but well not as many bulbs as you got - my window seeds germinated nicely and are now in the living room taking over a bit of space as south facing and gets the most light  

Fed the birds out side as was bit dryer they so needed food and I have not got much left

New allotment OMG...
