Naughty cat Fruitcake. Next doors kept pooping in my raised beds so i have sprinkled some holly leaves over it.No more poop

Looking forward to my precious day off tomorrow. Painted a piece of plank with my plot number on and a post, ready to go up at last. Does everyone else have to put a number up on their plot?

 Hi GardenGirl. Did think of the step over apple tree option, but as I am always tripping up and my plots on a slope, i could'nt face the hazard  lol

Our council are a bit strict re fruit trees. You cant overshadow another plot so you have to plant them in the middle. I've planted 2 apple trees to go over an archway over my centre path which I will prune to keep small. 

Wish I was there today instead of at work, its so lovely and sunny outside
