We don't have a shop but do have a picnic area and bar b cue. 

A plant sale and coffee morning sound good, we are a member of a national Allotment association and can get discount seeds from some companies there maybe other benefits , I'd like to progress that.

Hi you guys. Went to the allotment association meeting this evening. It went well. I'm going to attend the next one.

Juries still out about being more active. I'd like to help develop a sense of community any suggestions you guys...

I'm drying Apache, mine are a little soft, they haven't dried as well or as quickly this yr. I hang them upside down in the kitchen.

The majority have stayed red as usually but some have gone orange they usually don't go this colour unless they are stored for too long. I've been known to have dried apache chillies stored for up to two yrs 🐸

Carried on laying a path, I've put some steps in as the plot is on a slope. 

Brought a couple of chilli plants home to see if I can over winter them and get an early start next yr 

Went to a local chilli fest and bought some chilli seeds. 

I've loads of veg and flower seeds so will try to be more selective this yr.

I grew calendula this yr, it seemed to flower for months. I'll be pleased if it's self seeded. 

I get alot of foxglove, it's easily recognised and seedlings take well when transplanted.

Sounds like you had a productive day scroggin.

I've been laying a path and extended a couple of beds. The strawberry patch was given a tidy and I pulled up alot of runners.

Picked some leeks and more chillies to freeze.

GWRS I've been growing two pear and two cherry tree's into fans. Didn't get any fruit this year but the cherries were caught by a late frost.

I'd like to try espalier but wouldn't know were to start with the pruning.
