Gardengirl , yes the people known , the Allottment Ass has been contacting everybody , which had not been easy , they also had a meeting in the a local pub which I and others not on the committee attended , we are going to get in touch with Police to offer a reward ,plus posters in the villages ,  what we want to do is to stop them coming back , we fell it is local teenagers because it is in semi rural location , so would have to known where it is ! One of the sheds burnt down had a petrol mower in it , others had rotarators , as I say silly things stolen !

Must not dewl on subject need to more foreward , bought lots of garlic and onions for Autumn planting , not going to put any in spring as they don't seem to do so well

Also bought some spring bulbs 

have been clearing out green house , used compost taken to plot as soil improver which I took up this afternoon , moved some bits ready for horse tail weed killer spraying on Saturday and relayed some slabs flat on sand
