Thanks Gardengirl, I've just visited YouTube via the link too and watched one of the videos of Sean's allotment. It's handy to have an alternate way of watching garden/allotment info which you can access at any time 

We been out measuring and marking up for the base of the new greenhouse, but it's back to work for hubby tomorrow so no actually digging out until next weekend. It's just typical that he was poorly this last 10 days or so when he was on hols from work and hoping to have got it all done, never mind, we will get there!

Gina, nice Christmas pressies, lucky you

I had a disaster last year with my plastic greenhouse Roy...it had loads of new, tender plants in it and they were scattered all over the decking after a very windy night! 

It was weighted down with large stones but obviously not enough! Will try again this year ( said with fingers crossed) !

Happy New Year everyone

Hope you all enjoyed the festive season, we have been, and still are suffering with the cold virus that is going around so not a lot happening here gardening wise. 

Like many of you, I'm hoping to put pen to paper this weekend and plan what I hope to grow where this year then it will be a case of ordering my seeds etc.. I'm also looking forward to watching The Allotment Challenge tomorrow.

We are hoping to purchase a new greenhouse this year which will be located in a different area of the garden to the old current greenhouse so we need to get a base in pretty soon.

Hope you all enjoy your day today!

Just popped in to check what everyone's been doing !  Busy week work wise for me so no gardening done at all. I hate these dark evenings! 

Im envious when I read what you've all been up to( I mean that in a nice way )  I do enjoy reading all the threads. I've been browsing the Kings seed catalogue, first time I've had one from them, and I must admit Im pleased with the range and varieties they sell and all the info they give. Will definately be ordering from them.

its raining outside at the moment so not sure what we have instore for the weekend but hope you all manage to 'get out there'...enjoy!

GG, yes I've been looking through all my catalogues this afternoon, Suttons have some lovely gift ideas.

Re sunflowers, I like the Ruby Sunset, the colour looks lovely and rich and the Jade Green and Suntastic yellow are nice( dwarf varieties). So much to choose from!

It started off miserable this morning, lashing down but by late morning it had brightened up and was a lovely mild day......managed to get even more clearing done so next job is to dig out to prepare a base for a new greenhouse. I've been out with tape measure, pen and paper and lots of ideas being jotted down and many more in my head 

All all my seed catalogues have arrived so if it rains tomorrow I have plenty to keep me occupied, otherwise it's more digging!

Sadly Mr Fox paid a visit this week and we lost 3 of our chooks , I'm gutted and paranoid that he will be back for more! Guess it's the downside of keeping chickens!
