New allotment OMG...

Posted: 11/01/2015 at 17:54

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

Well got my plastic walk in green house down today and packed away in some cardboard boxes, was tough getting the poles apart but now away so the wind can't damage it any more

Thanks GWRS

Hello  Q is this about the time that everyone pays there allotment fees?

Q What is the first tool you got for your plot? 


Thanks Weyplotter,  I guess different locations have different rates for fees
