New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Posted: 24/10/2016 at 12:31

Hi Gardengirl, it's going to be an 8 by 6. It would be much nicer to build one, as you're doing, but I'm too lazy so taking the easy route.

Very envious Bob, I've got 2 bushes, must get some more, the leaves on mine are just getting some colour but nowhere near as fabulous as yours.

Enjoy Tenby GWRS, hats off to Gardengirl, I'm taking the easy route and buying a flat pack shed.

Constructed and laid the wooden base today so need to get on and order one. 

Still picking a few cucumbers and courgettes still have a few fruit but it will be cabbages and root veg from now on.

I'd much rather have Zoe Ball rather than Tess Daly, can't say I've noticed her babbling at high speed, she has her own style, I guess it suits some better than others. 

Don't think it would put people of watching the programme either way, I couldn't stand Bruce Forsyth but I just turned him out.

I don't believe it!

Good revenue for the ground and very unlikely to damage the turf, can't see a problem.

What is your weather like? (2)

Misty and cold outside, just right for a dog walk once I've had my second cuppa

Vandals in Sheffield

I haven't seen the tree felling in Sheffield, but I do remember an article in the news a few years back where an avenue of Horse chestnut were felled to stop children throwing sticks to collect conkers . Health n Safety gone mad.

Happy birthday NB, we were on the beach with our dog too, lovely morning at Minnis Bay on the North Kent shore. Nice crisp morning but warm enough at lunch time to eat fish n chips outside😊. 

Pembrokeshire coastal villages

A few years ago we walked a section of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, stunning scenery and lovely coastal villages. Great little busy service runs along the route . Must go back one day and do another section.
