DorsetUk-from a shrinking violet to- someone who doesn't suffer fools gladly I'm intrigued to hear what caused the change? Life experiences maybe?
PS2 sorry to disappoint you- I used to manage healthcare so wore mufti but I do wear grey joggers on the plot same as the inmates lol!

Morning everybody-you have made me laugh and yes we also have all sorts of nonsense going on-tools and apparently pears have been stolen! In fact recently the police have been involved and we can have our tools marked etc. Our allotment is a massive site 120 yrs old in the heart of town hidden by houses, if the gates are not locked anyone can get in so security is a problem. In practice we know sadly its an inside job when produce goes missing. I have been leaving my shed unlocked but I will put a lock as recent events have 'unnerved' me.
People's behavior never fails to amaze me-despite having worked 4 yrs in the prison service I'm still too trusting, I'm pretty good at locking the plots gate though!

You have an interesting theory Dorset UK, its a mystery. I could find out what actually happened by going to the BBQ/bonfire this Saturday courtesy of mgt. Its a sort of get together to welcome the new allotmenteers.
The extra place FGirl will probably be a mini orchard. Yes I'm really pleased as punch.

Me too Dove-never planted asparagus before, got the crowns from T&M followed their instructions fingers crossed. Being a bit impatient I'll be tempted to pick before I should.

Morning- A result. Went to the plot yesterday and saw a great big notice to the previous owner from the steward basically saying that its now been let and no longer belongs to him, he needs to make contact as they've not been able to reach him for mths. Also he hasn't actually paid the full amount.
Although I think it's ugly displaying this infor for all to see-at least It's mine.
Unfortunately some people take on plots and don't maintain them for all sorts of reason but don't give them up. As long as payment is made that seems to be ok-just unfair to those on the WL.
