Wish I was in garden , spent all day at home doing paper work , dinner at 6 , then a few hours more of paper work , own fault for letting it build up 

at least a quick look at this site , keeps me sane 

New allotment OMG...

We have 3 water cubes on A , slight problem with tap on one , filled 2 up on Sunday , cost us £3 each and they hold 1000 litres each , water butts from sheds now empty , it is nice to have sun shine but it would be helpful if it rains at night 

At home greenhouse water butt nearly empty , never have problem with water as stream at side of garden and never run dry in living memory , have built steps down to it a long time a go , is very useful at times 

happy allotmenteering everybody

Ginagibbs , Cotswold stone slabs sounds like a great find 

Somebody on the A gave us some surplus beetroot as our first lot of seeds didn't germinate , 

We keep giving rhubarb away as it is like a forest still 

spent weekend at allottment , everything looking good on target with digging  , even picket some broad beans 

never watered so much , it is the wind which is drying everything

Fruitcake no harm to potatoe plant , a couple of fiends who grow them in bags , often take some out and leave the rest growing 

been up to A this morning planted 3 squash and 3 pumpkin , never grown the later before , also did a bit of digging 

o/h in week planted leeks and weeded onions

After lunch cut lawns and a bit of dead heading , just having a beer waiting for dinner

hope you are all well , Gardengirl your digging grass sounds like really hard work but hopefully worth while , if we go for the day we take food as well , in the summer we sometimes take a disposable barbecue
