Well done Flowerchild - am really pleased for you. I'm sure you will enjoy your new job.
Kate, the allotment is a bit of a mess, but its been worse! Still got an area that needs preparation before I can get my courgettes and squashes in, and I need to get on with it! Should get done this week if I don't get distracted. The broad beans, peas, onions, shallots, garlic and potatoes are growing nicely, but so are the weeds, and the grass edges badly need a trim.
I got 3 dahlias yesterday at the allotment plant sale, so will be planting those soon. They have some healthy green shoots - do you think they can go in now or should I wait a couple of weeks? The weather looks promising!
