Been to the allotment today finished digging the half metre and shuffling the grass and dirt, dug and mounded the next load of dirt/ grass/ weeds from top of soil ready for Sunday - which means we will have made it when dug to the whole 12 metres across   

BizzieB - energy really wanted to get to the end of the row   want to have pallet bits on the allotment plot, the station does need attention not been there for the last week - opps


Where are the broad beans?

BizzieB your plot is looking good, great that you uncovered an extra bit, not seen your plot from the other way thought you could drive up to it but defiantly not, do like the way everyone's allotment plots are different 

GWRS will do - hope it will be ok and most of the glass will be in one piece

Been to the allotment dug another half metre and cleared the grass of the next half metre hand bit sore was a tough bit of ground, lots of rubbish in there and loads of bits of glass - sorted out area in garden where greenhouse in bits will go - till we clear the plot for it

Had an offer from someone on the allotment as they asked the council for a strimmer he wants to help strim the plot  that is great

GWRS did you put a pic on here sometime with the frame of your greenhouse

Hope the weather is nice for the weekend

Well we emailed a little while back today about the second greenhouse and someone picked it up this afternoon was going for 2 in then end not sure what happened there as we were in contact with them - saves a trip to Bournemouth  

So one greenhouse for my plot and taking it all apart Saturday which is brill as free and the table

Been to the allotment today dug half a metre had a look around the plot for sizes of bits

what do you have in your greenhouses?  are they on your allotment plot?

Fruitcake thanks for the tips

do you think a garden marker is ok - it says water and fade resistant - alcohol based ink

Going to contact council to see if allowed 2 gh first - still not sure but need to decide
