Gardengirl , your pallet pile is certainly growing , do you need many more before you start building ?

On way home called into allottment , collected a lettuce and dropped off some wood that I am going to make 2 new gates , as 2 of the existing ones are rotten , something for winter 

Also bought some garlic and onions for planting next month 

compost bins

Steve 309 , I also put it straight on beds as well and yes it is a good soil conditioner 

Lincolnshire County Council , give a card that you get stamped each time you take garden wast to the tip and after 6 you get a free bag of compost , I have found it to be excellent

I also put spent compost from the greenhouse in the compost bins as well they are all at the allotment 

like Zoomer I also dry weeds on a pallet and burn but if bad wether due it's the tip , in fact off there this morning 

we also have a garden wheelie bin collected every 2 weeks which we have to pay extra for which always gets filled from garden waste

nothing wrong with composting weeds , that joy of gardening everybody can do it there own way
