Baza that is so good when bulbs start popping though the soil

Have you been watching the allotment challenge?

You could join some other allotment gardeners on here, if you go to the allotment what you got up to, and other topics

That is  great GemmaJF  like the lizard in your pic,  sure the lizard will like the plants for a bit of shade but warmth in the summer, we left the ones up the station black and the plants attract lots of ladybirds

Re done two of them a few weeks ago with plants some daffodil bulbs and violas and bluebells

Just mix topsoil with compost or use your own soil that helps so they do not dry out too much in summer with the heat if it gets that warm this year

Fruitcake - think if you get your chickens in time you could make pancakes using the eggs from them for pancake day

I definitely need a new fork one at home nice and bent one prong one way one the other that was for finding under the ground a few lime stone bricks

Ginagibbs will this be your first rent as you have had your free bit now to clear it now

After watching the Allotment challenge I so want to grow yellow cucumbers not seen them ones before only the crystal lemon ones - which I have not had much success from as the slugs eat the plant before they get a good sized plant  

Really enjoyed the AC this week even the cooking bit well they did make ice lollies and leant some bits  

Still looking though the seed catalogues picking seeds I like - just don't want spend too much - does all add up

Not sure what sized plot I will get yet, so far I have the cheapest veg area in the back garden

Not sure about swinging an Azada around either - but good you like it Fruitcake

Weyplotter you were lucky to get a shed with tools in, I do have spare hand tools fork and spade that I will use there when I get it

think I will get a long handled cultivator seen one I like

Sounds good about some FYM - not sure the allotment has that., think they have bark chippings free
