GWRS I was thinking of getting a poly tunnel to replace my grow house in the future (I wont have room for both) Have you seen any bargain ones?

Garden Girl mine is a half plot (and it feels too small already!)

My sister and her partner took on an allotment in Kent, she gave it up after a very short time because one of the other plot holders kept dumping rubbish and old carpet etc on her freshly dug plot. She complained to the powers that be, but it kept happening. Glad to say we dont have that problem where I am and there seems to be a good spirit.

Hi Fruitcake,sorry to hear about your garlic. I planted  my garlic and onions about 3 weeks ago and they are romping away, we have had an unusual amount of warm weather though. Never had success with them at home as my garden is too shady, unlike my plot which is full sun all day. I have put them in the top area which is has the best drainage. Got broad beans in the green house so will put them in soon. Need to spend a few hours putting my grow house frame back together as it blew over in the strong winds. I got some plumbers tape to bind the joints, so I hope it will stay in one piece a bit longer

Love the porch idea guys. I have used my incinerator a couple of times already, they are really good and you can just tip the ashes onto the soil and dig it in.

Wish the shed was bigger so that I could sit in there with the dogs if it rains and have a cup of tea

Love your community BBQ GWRS. I was one of 3 on ours yesterday, so it was very quiet. I took some photos so will post them in a bit, when I have 10 mins spare
