Had a good day at plot , built new gate to replace the one that was vanderlised last year 

Also repaired another gate and put up shelf in shed , abit of a DIY day 

Got rid of my old fire bin , so rusted I could actually fold it with my hands and put in plastic bag for the dustbin 

The people on the next door plot have ordered a small poly tunnel from Amozen for  £70 , interested to see what it is like ?

Day in garden tomorrow , gone really mild again 11 degrees
