That sounds good Fruitcake

I am not sure if I will like cauliflower so growing it, think things taste better when you grow it yourself  how do you have it cooked?

did not like the small sweetcorn till I grew it myself this year (minipop) and broad beans still bit unsure even though home grown

Had homegrown sweetcorn and french beans tonight - must be a night of your own veg grown


Salino - make sure you keep up with us and report on if you get a plot please, makes it so excited for you if you get it

Hello all

Very sad news Woody the Hillier's Romsey is no more it is closed gates shut no sign no more, half the building has been all took down and entrance tent all took away - it all looks a mess now  - the whole place must have been gone for a while by the look of it, so sad - I feel that one was the best Hillier GC nice and relaxing small but with really knowledgeable people and inspiring and great talks there.

Had to go to the Botley one, that one does not inspirer me really - came away with what I wanted 6 bags of multi purpose compost few veg plants cauliflower and broccoli will grow them try and see if I like them and a Michaelmas daisy white pretty one

Will plant out tomorrow been spitting a bit today afternoon, I manage to sow green manure on one veg bed and shredded one bag garden waste of twigs plant stalks seed heads as well, got coated with fluff cause of wind had a tidy up then went to the gc

I want a flower patch to attract the bees, do think of it as an extension of my garden but just don't want lots of tree in the veg patch like I have here  

Paths think either grass or weed matting and bark chippings

Salino is that your space or are you hoping to get that bit of space - is there no waiting list


Think when you get a new project like an allotment you do over do it a bit to start with it is the excitement of it all so you do end up with aching muscles  

Zoomer like that - lazy allotmenteer,    When I get a plot after a bit of hard graft I want a seating area so I can enjoy the allotment I know I don't stop and look at the garden enough here which I should really
