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)

Hi Mel M, i'm not that away far from Brum, I've lived in Cheltenham this past 25 yrs although I am an Essex girl !!!

We dont pay for water on our site, but have to supply our own hoses and water butts. I am lucky to have a tap at the top of my plot.

The people on the plot next to me have chickens. They know me now and cluck when I arrive, as I give them dandelion leaves or slugs when I find any. We also have some very laid back foxes  who dont even run off when they see my dogs!

Wow Mel M you've got a good deal. I have to pay £10 for my shed on top of the £50 rent. My neighbours on 2 sides seem to have lost interest, and as  I would like a bit more space I was thinking of asking but I dont want to pay £100 a year!!
