I know what you will be doing this weekend then Gardengirl      re skips: you have to keep your eyes peeled plus a bit of luck. I will paint the trellis this weekend as its going to be wet, I can do that under cover in the garage

Other jobs for a wet weekend... bubble wrap inside of green house

Cant do any digging, last time I tried I could have made a clay pot!!

I bet they look sureal Zoomer. We dont have any beekeepers sadly.

Had a nice afternoon yesterday  at the plot. Did a bit of tidying up and planted broad beans, some were from my greenhouse and I put in a couple of packets of seeds aswell to see how they do. Shallots also went in.

I found loads of 2' wide trellis panels in a skip a few nights ago, I will use these for something, possibly a low fence to divide my plot and to put up the side of the shed to grow a grape vine.

GWRS your plot looks so tidy!! Great news GG hope you get yours very soon, you seem so keen.

Did'nt get to mine on Sunday as had a lot to do in the garden giving it a pre winter tidy up and sorting out my new work/potting bench.

Felt somewhat devastated though as we have honey fungus in our garden from a dying tree and it is spreading. Just hoping my roses and other trees are healthy enough to not get infected.

Last night I found a water butt on top of a skip, perfect for my allotment. (so it went in the back of my car of course!) Took it to the plot only to discover that the tree man had been and deposited another lovely big pile of wood chips. I can now finish my paths! While I was there, I flashed the torch on my frog pond, and sure enough I have a resident frog at last Great night all round (or am I easily pleased)

Happy Birthday for yesterday Woo2. GWRS, re pallets, try industrial areas/warehouses etc where they have deliveries.

Its sunny today but I am stuck indoors (at work), not looking forward to the journey home, its race day at Cheltenham and traffic gets snarled up.

Hi Jane,

Monty Don has his outside in the summer and brings them in for the winter, so I think your safe for a good few years yet. Sounds like you have a happy tree

Hi GWRS its stopped raining here, but wont be up to mine until Sunday now to plant some broad beans and shallots this time.

Hubby got a free display cabinet for my potting area from work. Its about 3 mts long and has doors so i can store all my pots and stuff. it will look a lot better than the old broken kitchen unit i am currently using and its work bench height very useful!
