Hi Everyone, hope you have a nice weekend, we are going to drive to Kent tonight (to clear my Dads house, as it goes on the market next week) and spend some time with my sister. Having the rest of the week at home, so plan to do a bit on the plot.  

Went to water there last night, radishes and turnips I sowed direct are coming to life and all the seedlings in the poly tunnel look happy

Hi Woo, welcome back, poly tunnel going great guns thanks, got lots growing in it, dont know what I would have done without it as my greenhouse house is full to bursting!! Heard about the Dundry Nursery potato weekend but did'nt go as I was working. 

Bought a six pack of strawberry plants last year from one of the supermarkets, they were fantastic big tasty fruits so hope they do as well this year, they were cropping till October!! So easy to propagate too

Zoomer, I have made the area near my shed a  flower border , I've got hollyhocks, foxgloves, aquelegia, campanulas and daffs. Ive put an arch up to grow my apple trees over and have planted some sweet peas there. Should look nice in the summer. I like my plot to look pretty as well as functional! (husband thinks I'm nuts) I have sown some sun flowers and marigolds too. 

Am I grumpy cos.....

Fruitcake, if its any consolation, one of my next door plot holders, who has a full plot and who I share my split shed with,  I have only seen twice since last year,. He likes to use loads of weedkiller (I'm trying to be organic)  and the people with the top half of my plot are so messy its not true (keep hoping they will leave). Luckily the people the other side of me with the chickens are like minded, so we have a good moan together

Hi Caral, congrats on your new plot, you cant use enough horse manure in my opinion, especially on clay soil
