Hello all , finally got to the allottment , got some sprouts , parsnips , celeriac and leeks , however , swedes hopeless and the carrots planted in a box , ie. About 2 ft high , no carrot fly but only as big as a finger nail !

Dovefromabove , go for it 

You will find it useful for all sorts of things , we had a little party in the Garden and put up lights , have a double socket fitted 

We use to have a George Foreman grill , electric and I would use that instead of a barbecue , a lot less fuss and cleaner
