New allotment OMG...

Posted: 21/01/2014 at 10:03

Congratulations Z44. I got mine last yr-love it. I was there yesterday weeding the soft fruit patch.Perfect way to keep fit! You will find fellow plotters very friendly helpful eager to share their knowledge, plants and harvest too.

Just take it easy-so easy to get carried away with the excitement of the plot. Its hard work but so worth it.

GW mag just arrived and has veg planner-perfect.


Anyone know what this is?

The shape and style reminds me that it could be one half of a nurses buckle worn on their belts. They were usually silver or bronze.

What's your day been like?

Good luck with the allotment Zoomer44. I thought I had to wait yrs and so didn't see the point in applying until last yr. Guess what? Phoned up- went to see it the next day and choose a half a plot got the keys there and then.

Yes No expert watching the robin is such a lovely sight. A pick up for me every morning is watching the squirrels and birds eating, playing in my garden-then comes the coffee!

Went to the allotment for the first time this yr. Not a soul in sight, enjoyed the birds tweeting breathed in the fresh air and did some weeding with the robin following me around. Lovely morning and now to the day job-housework!

Fab photo Bill. My in-laws live in Toronto, we had Christmas with them a few yrs ago-never ever have I seen so much snow and felt sooooooooo cold. Love the country and everything about Canada. Never ever will l go again in the winter. Perfect distance for a mother in law to live!

You know you are getting old when...

When the builders no longer whistle when you walk by!

When you keep getting those 'senior moments'

When you have to ask your teenager to help you with the 'self service' in the supermarket.

Cats in Gardens

I agree whole heartedly with what's already been mentioned. Why should I have to clear up the revolting mess and endure the stench which makes me vomit left by neighbours cat? I've tried sprinkling chillie powder but again like everything only work for a bit and in this rain what's the point of sprinkling anything? Now they have discovered the driveway-it appears to me a non win situation where the cats are in the driving seats!

Removing tree stumps and roots

Stump removal people are rather expensive but worth it when it's not doable by your self. Recently on my allotment my neighbouring allotmenteer removed it for me. He is 80 with several health problems - I was so fearful that he may have a heart attack in the process. What a true gentleman and a dear friend now.
