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
