New allotment OMG...

Friend gave me 4 open pallets with metal hinges , so I will divide one of my larger beds into 4 smaller ones , much easier to manage and I have found that putting fleece or netting across the top , depending on what you are growing gives themthat early protection 

need to plant up a new strawberry bed before end of month 

definite drop in tempreture 


Having a go at a cut flower patch...

Pat E , o/h , change of plan and made " onion chutney " instead 

If you goggle onion marmalade you can get the recpie , that is what o/h does , does have a special recipe 

you seem to use your dehydrating machine a lot , obviously useful

poped up to allottment this morning , left Sunday papers in shed , so put path clear on paths of shredded material , lit fire bin full of old rasberry canes and sprayed Swede covered in caterpillars

just about to have lunch then start paper work 

It's my birthday
