Hello Ginagibbs

on rules of our council website W3 You must erect a clearly visible number on your plot, good they do that if like I read somewhere you get a plot then you make sure it is the right plot unlike someone you don't want to be digging the wrong one

Ah Roy you know about Network Rail vandals or so called the garden clearance team - I volunteer at a train station garden and they have strimmed off some of the plants we put in before they go around once or twice a year,  shame you have lost a bit of windbreak from you plot may be get a bit of that windbreak fabric - like GWRS has    

GWRS sounds like some bits getting done

Sean added a new video and met with Rob the winner of allotment challenge at Brighton's Seedy Sunday on the 1st of Feb he knew before we did I could see Michelle in the background from the first Big allotment challenge and Allotment wars - I thought about going but was a bit knackered from the potato day the day before

So we have Jo Jo, Sandra and Rob left, I was thinking it would be Rob, Jo Jo and Alan in the final 3 but no

Tootles you mean Lena boat lady

I would like Jo Jo to win

I have been enjoying watching more this year think because it is just one person per a plot, info tonight on cape gooseberry I am trying to grow them this year so all info welcome   

I also got the show perfection peas to grow this year like Jo Jo did

Do think they are all good

Shame when the leave they have to go and leave all the produce on there plots and not sure they get to take any of it

Ginagibbs That is a bit strange but I can under stand as not fair making shade on some one else's plot, you can buy those step over apple trees

Like the sound of one going over an arch
