Glad to hear Barley is OK. Always a worry when they develop a limp. 

New allotment OMG...Part 2...

No fruit trees Gardengirl just bushes ie blackcurrant, gooseberries etc. When I took over the adjoining plot to mine it had 3 well established, very large apple trees. Though good croppers biannually they weren't good keepers and shaded half the plot so I cut them down. My better half would like a small apple tree so may get one for her birthday.

Finally managed to get over on to the allotment, disgraceful really as it's only across the road but family commitments have eased so snuck over for a couple of hours. Got another bed dug over so nearly all the winter digging is done.

I took our young Border Collie with me, about 20 mins in I found her ' pruning' the raspberries, in the summer she loved to pick them off the plants so maybe there is a residual smell she's attracted too?!.

Poor Barley hope it's not too serious and Naya too, such a shame for her and you too Clarice.
