Digger, that sounds petty to me, I am half Yorkshire and heard it all, big oh the arm big oh the head tight oh the pocket, you laugh it off.
This week the regulars including me replied to a lady with a broken tree, Various compost and leaf mould queries, Chrysanthemum and lawn plus how to take cuttings and should someone plant a Victoria Plum and it is only Thursday. Many other queries got multiple replies and yes there was some chit chat at the same time, if you had ever been on an allotment you would know that they work hard and talk often, as they have a communal tea break every subject under the sun comes up as well as gardening. When I write in reply I do not expect any come back though it is nice to get a thank you which often happens, three times to me this week. The colleges now know this forum is a hot bed of information and again this week we were asked for information from a student who got lots of answers. Clique? a harsh word not earned by the people on here who give time and patience answering the same questions over and over why? because we too were once rookies.
