New allotment OMG...

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 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

I buy mine in spring already flowering (lazy I know) but when they go over I plant them outside. They come up next year no problem
