New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Posted: 21/04/2016 at 20:32

Ginagibbs , it was from  Lidl , got it last year and is surpising strong , put the feet in concrete , will put picture on 

Good idea to tidy up wasteland , once tidy people usually stop dumping stuff , can't understand why people do that 

Been up again today lovely and sunny and put in main crop potatoes , Golden Wonder , never grown these before plus few other little jobs 

Was going to build a fruit cage but give up on idea ( sowed green manure last year and it kept the weeds at bay ) so created 2 new beds where it was going , only rough dug it today 

Hope alls well with everybody

Good afternoon everybody , nice and sunny been in Garden , just had lunch , thinking about a little nap before cutting lawns , should have dried by now 

I use to have trouble sleeping when working because I was always thinking about the next days schedule , however , learn to have a filling cabinet in mind I would put the next day's problem in there and close it , probably seems strange but it worked for me 

Hope you are all having a nice sunny day

Hello , water available from May , however , water butts full and water cubes still have plenty in 

We don't have shop , site not big enough ,

The  Garden club in the Village did have one open 20years ago but you could get things cheaper from the likes of B & Q , however , they did sell stuff loose ie. bone meal ect . So it was run down and closed
