Gardengirl brocolli looks good and lots of purchase always exciting 

Been up to day but repairing fence due to wind damage , bit behind with digging at moment but will catch up eventually 

Couple of pallets left in car park for couple of weeks now , so as the rule is anything in car park is any bodies so had them 

Did good deed though put bark chipping on road way into plot , chap got stuck earlier , 2 of us had to give him a push with some carpet under wheels , he has a disabled daughter in wheel chair in back of van , so vechle a bit heavy  

Happy gardening all

Rats , I live in a semi rural location and there is only 3 ways to get rid of rats , unless of course you have Buzzards but no guarantee they will take yours , that is shoot them  , get a powerful air rifle , trap but have known them chew there way out or poison , get somebody in to do it rather DIY 

Best of luck

Harriet , is this your garden or allotment ? Are you able to put pictures on site 

depending on size you could creatre beds 6' by 4' or 6' by 6' so that you can plant / weed  beds with out walking on them 

You could get a cheap Book from a shop called Works or Library on Allotment / veg growing 

look forward to helping with info , best of luck
