allotment vandalism !!

We quite often get tools and veg stolen from the site. Usually starts in the easter school holidays. MY shed was broken into but because my tools are so old they werent interested, just pulled everything off the shelves and dumped on the floor. One man had every pane of glass broken in his green house, because it had an aluminium frame the whole thing twisted and fell down. At one point the police were there more than the allotmanteers. You put so much time and effort into your plot its heartbreaking. Whatever is done they still manage to get in and cause trouble. The site is one of the biggest in the country and its very hard to keep an eye on the whole thing.

When i was very little my mum and dad had panted the garden with lots of daffodil bulbs, it was their first proper garden. One spring morning my mum opened the door to admire all her flowers. I had already been out there and picked the lot and hid them in the side passage. She wasnt best pleased to say the least and all my dad could was laugh. When i left school i trained to be a florist, couldnt really be anything else could i.

Same here, couldnt find anything to use them so sadly they went in the bin. Perhaps we should suggest to the compenies to try and make them re-usable in some way.

Well done martymower, all i could manage with pallets was a compost bin. I am building a bug hotel at the bottom of the garden. Its still a work in process.

I was given a bag of odds and ends of wool so habe taught myself to knit and have knitted a teapot 2 cups and saucers and 4 cup cakes. They have an odd catergory at the allotment show so maybe i will enter them. The cakes are calorie free.
