Moles drove me to distraction especially when they started digging up my lawn in the summer. Like everyone I tried everything and to be honest nothing actually worked. In total desperation I decided to catch and kill. The thought of actually doing it made me pretty sick and being a life long veggie how could I have thoughts of murder? I questioned my sanity. So I gave moley another chance, again the lawn was destroyed. Enough was enough I got my 2 spades and followed the instruction and caught the mole bagged him and took him to the woodland.

I was surprised how small moley was and since June fingers crossed we are ok.

Gg haven't been to Southamton for yrs, nice place. Sorry hopeless at IT stuff so the pictures I have taken I will not be able to put them on here, daren't ask the husband as he's too big for his boots already!

Wow Zoomer you've done well with the winter veg- mine started ok and when I saw my cauli cabbage etc full of caterpillars even with the netting I threw everything on the compost heap.

I planted asparagus in Sept they are doing really well-easy to grow. Mind you the recent frost has probably killed the off.

Kitchen mag sounds nice shame I've already subscribed to grow your own.

Anyone growing Cranberry? got 2 plants dead cheap from W/rose they seem to be doing ok.

Hello Gg I'm in Surrey. I have half plot but in reality it's more like a three quarter which I've had for 18mths and recently have acquired a quarter which is next to mine.

How about yourself? Are you about to get one? Having an allotment is simply fab I love gardening although I'm relative new but like you always looking for books.

Just subscribed to 'grow your own mag' as gardeners world mag isn't enough for me now.

Zoomer agree with you whole heartily about permanent planting. Life is so much easier when you have some beds permanently full and that leave you more time to spend on the rest of the plot.

I had inherited a currents bed/gooseberries and now have a strawberry, asparagus,rhubarb, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and cranberries, and a mini orchard! Do we like fruit? yes yes yes. Amongst this lot I have planted garlic and onions.

Did plant winter veg which didn't do well except for leeks which nobody wants to eat!

So not a lot to do on the plot now which gives me time to potter about in the garden.

Apparently he lives locally never bumped into him myself- how would I react?-walk on!! Would sing along to his songs though and yes did enjoy his music when it was around.
