Many thanks everyone for the advice and yes the weather has changed at the moment it is quite cold now. I am looking at growing potatoes, carrots, courgettes, beets, toms, peas, sweetcorn (if I can), salad leaves. I have left a 1/3 of the allotment so that I can grow some wildflowers to hopefully attract bees and butterflies. I have strawberries, raspberries and brambles also. I'm really just concentrating on what we like as a family and to a certain extent what is quite easy and can look after itself as work full time so getting down everyday can be hard.
