GWRS that is why it is interesting seeing picture of allotment site as they can be so different and wondering round or being nosy when going past

BizzieB that would be good if you could get one of the plots with the shed on so fingers crossed

Weyplotter your new toy sounds good which one is it? is it with out a lead just a battery?  nice to have home made honey - you are a DIYer now you have a tool 

Hello Bunka where are you? have a look on gumtree on freebies and see if any horse manure or topsoil going free  or Google well rotted horse manure in your area

Ginagibbs you have been doing good with your skip hunting - true allotmenteer's get as much stuff for free 

Stagbeetle I want a good sized bit of the allotment to be for cut flowers, I have loads of seeds free from mags  GW mag has free zinnia seeds out from 20th Feb, Have a look at the links below for some ideas on cut flowers to grow

Anyone done any gardening today?

Forester2 is tricky having to know what you need to take all the time that must be planning what you will do before going, understand the annoying bit of having to go back and get bits done that a lot for the station garden now have a small yellow grit bin we use for our tools  like that you have hidden a chair

Forester2 your plots looks amazing in that pic shame you don't get to have a shed and only one lot of water, I guess you have to take drinks with you  

BizzieB sounds as though the horse manure is doing well, have you got a shed on your plot now?    

Fruitcake that is great part of the chicken wire on it is a big frame to cover, I think it may take you a while to do 

Stagbeetle are you going to have an area for cut flowers?  I see on the other thread you are getting your keys tomorrow - so free range of plot from then on   

Been weeding part of station garden today lots of bulbs showing - going to start the broad beans off soon
