Whats your plans for the garden this year?

Thanks for the welcome.

I am sitting in my flat drinking tea and watching the rain pour down outside, so I doubt whether I shall be allotmenteering today! Good weather forecast for tomorrow, but it really needs a fortnight at least to dry out down there - dig too deep and you hit the water table.

Some lovely garden projects in this thread - good luck with them all.

I do hope so, but the fields are still flooded down there.

Hello folks. A new poster here.

Last July I got an allotment down here on the Somerset Levels - I live in a flat with no garden, so I was very excited. This is the allotment when I took it on:

I managed to clear most of it, but then the rains came! The site is very near a river and the flood waters have been lapping at it for much of the intervening time. It's a clay soil, being river silt, so impossible to get on there. I am feeling very dispirited at the moment as the rain does not seem to want to stop! I work full time and live alone, so am a bit time poor, especially at this time of year with the dark evenings.

This is more or less how it is at the moment (my camera uses film, so I have a time delay while I get them developed - RIP Jessops):

 So this year I am planning to get something done - not entirely sure when I shall be able to get started, though. It appears to be raining again......sigh.
