Had an email from the council lady that deals with allotments, she is sending a notice to the people with the plot near mine to clear it up or vacate, she has also suggested that they could reduce it so that I can have part of it!! will have to wait and see what happens.

Garden Girl, have you got yours yet?

Hi all, back from my break, glad to see you all getting on well. Had a few long sessions at the plot. Poly tunnel fit to burst with stuff growing, spuds are all showing leaves and the beetroot, carrots, turnips and beans are all doing well. Had to re pot some of the toms as they are getting big. Looking forward to getting more planted in the ground now.

The people on the plot next to me have managed to get some more space from the lady adjoining them and are making a good job of cultivating it, even the chap next to me has upped his game and dug his patch over. The only one letting the site down is right above me, still have'nt heard from the council to see if he is still renting it or not. I would love to take his plot on, but might have to wait if there is still a long list. In the meantime I try to ignore the mess and weeds

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
