Hello , good allotment meeting , I am not the committee but anybody can attend and concerned about security 

We are going to look into buying 4 solar/battery security cameras for the site and see if they will fit into bird boxes , also see about fencing an open section next to a field at the bottom of the site 

Will try and get there Friday or Sunday , happy gardening everybody

Quick question for the composting experts

I would have thought that having worms means the compost is good

Coffe grinding occasionally I get a bag from a coffee shop and I just mix in with the other compost in the bin and it has been fine , there was a discussion on hear some time ago about coffee grinding and the General opion was it was ok in small amounts
