New allotment OMG...

My large peach tree came from Lidl

That sounds good fruitcake are they going to your allotment?

Roy that is good glad you are keeping your plot - peas are good I sowed mine in large row trays about begin of April last year and they did really well, Runner beans are good to grow - I am getting new seeds of those on the weekend they do them cheap for a lot at the Hampshire potato day   

GWRS I will keep in touch with the council even just to find out if I have moved on the list

David K my sweet peas are getting tendrils I have took these off as they are not big enough yet, they have about 3 sets of leaves now 3rd ones right next to the top

Is that about ready to pinch out now?  why are they getting tendrils so soon?
