Oh no is it nearly that time again!!!

Bubble wrap with big bubbles is best. Plastic fixings I got from B & Q. (or failing that sellotape and bulldog clips)

End of the season thoughts

It cant be winter yet, still so much colour in the garden!!!

Got masses to do  coz the allotment took over this summer. Still got loads of bulbs and my foxgloves to plant,  I need to re plant a few mistakes and want to re design a border thats too narrow. I love getting out in the colder months as its easier to do the hard digging etc.

Plus this wind is knocking all the leaves of so will bag up for compost.

Get well soon Nigel!

Hi Guys, I walked past another allotment plot yesterday and they have a skip parked there for all their rubbish. Do your councils do this?  I thought I might email ours and get one delivered too.

Glad to be at work today as its raining very hard here so I dont feel so bad about being stuck indoors

Zoomer I just managed to get some of the last few onions and garlic from our local GC, worth ringing round incase there are some left.

We can have bonfires between October and March. I went to Wicks today and got an incinerator, they are on special offer £16.99 reduced from about £30

Hi all, Spent yesterday afternoon digging more weeds out as I want to plant my onions. Spring cabbage is in now and just planted some tulips and wallflowers for a bit of spring colour. I can now have a bonfire and get rid of a lot of rubbish thats been piling up (we are restricted on this)
