Hello and welcome Roy what sort of things are you wanting to grow?
Try and see if you can get any well rotted horse manure for your plot that will help improve the soil where needed, well sounds as though you are making a good start getting rid of the weeds, where about are you?
I was reading this interesting http://www.allotment-garden.org/allotment/new-allotment.php
and been watching more of Katie's allotment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7rklH3oNI8
Ginagibbs good one yes those sunflowers are brill keeping all the slug away (not they get eaten to quick before they get good tuff stems and roots)
The way I like to grow these is in tins that had food in the ring pull type, then use the tin opener to open the bottom and keep that bit in the tin - needs to lean on the bit that had the ring pull lid and gives you drainage and when ready to plant out push the bottom of the tin straight up and your plant pops out - if you get that
GWRS great you got to spend the day up the allotment and what a harvest you have
