New allotment OMG...

Will look into getting some bark chippings too, I could do with making some mud free paths. This rain has made my clay soil even stickier!

I am off work for a week, not going away, so hoping the weather will be fine and I can get more done down the "lottie"  I have plans to make an apple tree arch and dig beds for my fruit bushes .

Good luck with your plot Salino, its such an exciting time !!

Hi GG Its a lovely plot, surrounded by trees so it feels very private.

Thats my shed, I share it with next door but it has 2 doors so they are separate inside (good job cos I get changed in there). It has a lean too bit on the back thats very usefull, the dogs go there for shade. I have my walk in green house too now, I have got a couple of chairs but I never get time to sit down.too busy digging !!

The plot near the entrance is run by an elderly lady, its very pretty and neat and sets a high standard

Hi Guys, as a new plot holder I am enjoying this thread, glad to hear I'm not the only one who's muscles are screaming right now! Got a couple of pics for you. One is of my plot (before I started on it..looks like field) and another of someones plot at the car

Hi Pauline, I'm in your club!! I saw an article once that said that Kiwi fruit eaten 1 hour before bed can help with insomnia. Apparently it has a chemical in it that aids sleep.

Worth a try
