Hello again everyone,and thank you for your comment's, i did work on a distance learning course, with the Chelsea gardening school.this took me the best part of four year's, mainly because I was,and still am working full-time. And when talking of my other job,as being a part of my other life,a job which I had fallen out with.I do have thirty years experience of gardening organically. At this moment, the allotment is growing leeks,I have planted garlic,broad beans are in tubs in the potting shed for when I can get up to the allotment im hopping to do so this weekend and to also plant three tray's of onions.this moment in time,im making as much homemade compost as possible, here's an idea why not use junk mail and bills for compost

Thanks jo47 well I'm no expert,I do use my own organic compost,and I would recommend anybody to do so,and make your own leaf mould grow as much as possible from seed.write everything down good,bad that happens,dig up the lawn.I always tell people that the soil makes me feel alive,even more so in my other job,in my other trying to find a publisher, who will publish my gardening journal's but no luck yet,anyway my opinion on gardening allotments and being self sufficient that's how to live the good life.

Ok I shall share some of my gardening idea's, experiences thought's from my gardening diaries its just stuff that I write down.I did tune in to watch the good life in the eighties, loved it and that's what got me into self sufficiency. I do make a mental note of the happens on the allotment. When I first went there,I felt like Clint Eastwood, walking into a bar full of the bad guys in those spaghetti westerns quite desends, beady eyes watching my every move,...ten years on last month,nothing has changed.tune in tomorrow night for an exclusive read of the allotment diaries....
