Hello strangers!  Can I interrupt your coffee to say a quick hello?

I disappeared last year because I got pregnant and very sick.  it felt like I stepped off the planet for a while.  Bizarrely gardening also made me feel sick.  I think it was because I pushed myself to go on a couple of gardening outings whilst sick and there became an association. Even the turning allotment picture on the bbc intro made me gag!!!

anyway, baby is 6 weeks and all is going well.  He's been willing to sleep long enough in the pram outside to al.ow me to do some weeding each day  - and boy do I have some catching up to do!

i hope all is well with you lot.  Looking forward to catching up now that I'm foruming again.

Mine is safety glass too.  Just has to be with kids.  It came as standard with Swallow greenhouse.  Agree tho, at an allotment it needs to be polycarbonate.

I've found that mid May is the best time to hit ground elder.  Get it then and you'll have the least grow back compared to earlier or later In the season.
