Weyplotter, I grew Aubergines and peppers a few years ago in my GH. Hope you have more success than me, they were very small, not sure if I fed them enough. Great that you have your new GH to play in! Father in law gave me an electric propogator, I use it in the kitchen to get stuff going then move them to the GH when the weather is warmer.

Wow, if thats the case, thats really bad. (and I own 2 dogs!!) So sorry you are having this problem, they give us dog owners a bad reputation Ring the council, perhaps they will put up some signs.

Hi Stagbeetle, re dog poo alley, if its council owned you could ask them to put dog poo bins at either end, then the dog walkers can bag and bin it? worth a try!

Weather here in Gloucestershire was dreadful yesterday, did'nt venture out in the garden let alone the allotment, must be the first time for ages !!

Last week one of the ladies at the site gave me some stems of Boysenberry to plant, hers are massive so I'm hoping for good things, just need to get some stakes and wires to hold them up with. Planted some Jerusalem Artichokes too.

Weyplotter, our water gets turned off too so we use water butt water instead, not much use for washing wellies though.

Well done with your plot Victoria, its looking really tidy now. Its good to get the structure sorted before you start growing.

Still waiting for the poly tunnel, think its due Wednesday.

Have a lovely holiday GWRS, going anywhere exotic?

Working today and looking out at blue sky. No gardening for me. Tomorrow is supposed to be a wash out so will get spring cleaning indoors instead.

Still waiting for my poly tunnel to arrive

What is the club Zoomer, is it just for your allotments or for the area? Our allotments are run by the council and they have an association. Have'nt joined yet.

 Lucky you with your parking GWRS, ours is only a small site, about 35 plots, and most are half plots. How many at your site? We dont have a shop, just a loo, but most plots have a shed. Parking can be a bit of a squish too, as the car parks not that big. I can walk there if need be as its only 10 mins away from my house.
