bizarre situation- what would you do?

Posted: 24/10/2014 at 19:48
Hi Dove- well the neighbor-I doubt If I will see him for a while unless he pops in to plant the garlic. I feel so guilty as I've dug up his plants and thrown them on the compost heap to create space for my asparagus bed! I had great plans for this space and was pinching myself at having such a sunny spot and near the water tank etc.
Verdun- Yes I will mull it over and then speak with the chair. I don't want to cause problems as its a very knit community but I don't want to taken for a ride either. Diplomacy has never been my strong point I prefer to say as it is-but I will try!

Thanks Philippa and Viola Man

Yes you are both offering sound advice. Actually the chap who owned it is a really nice man and I've missed him and was concerned that he hadn't been around! We call him the 'occasional Gardner!'
I'm more annoyed with the 'powers to be' at their mismanagement. Its actually a really friendly place and I do so love it.
Its hard for me to accept the unfairness etc- Its only a plot after all-I guess.

Hi All I need some advice on a bizarre situation on my allotment.I have been on a list for an additional plot for 18mths-I have half plot at moment. Recently a qtr plot next to mine came up and to my horror was offered to a newcomer as the chair wants newcomers to be given first choice. Fortunately when I made a fuss I was given the adjoining plot. However now it transpires the previous owner NEVER gave it up but as he hadn't paid or maintained it, steward decided it was available. Having had the plot for 4 weeks have paid and worked extremely hard done some planting etc-now steward wants it back! because the previous owner has recently paid and has been seen working on the plot! I'm really upset- what would you do? The committee has rules but tend to do their own thing. I shan't be going to the allotment this w/end-I might say thing I may regret!!

Slept like a log unaware of the wind which very kindly swept the leaves into the borders. Surrey- nice and sunny most of the day just a few gusts of wind handy for the washing.

bags for composting

I used them to collect millions of leaves last yr-I'm surrounded by trees! I have been adding the leaf mould to my compost and have made the best compost ever. Definitely will be doing the same now.

My garden centre have just reduced all their seeds to 50p! All top supplies -T& M Suttons etc, some were originally ??3.69 like pepper chili which expires 2016. Bought loads-so looking forward to sowing.

Are you finding this is a poor season?

Posted: 10/08/2014 at 09:56
Being this is my second season for growing on the plot-its been simply fab. A lot of the veg has been a 'first' for me and I'm still so excited and the taste-unbelievable.
Excellent performers so far: Peas Strawbs tomatoes (loads but still green) beans and rhubarb.
