New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Ankle is alot better, will be swollen for a few more weeks though but it's good to be pain free.


What a bargain, GWRS, Aldi are so good in terms of value for money. 


I have some of their hand tools, stainless steel and ever so cheap.

The allotment committee got back to me, we have a guy on site who keeps bees, has all the protective gear, he's going to deal with it. Another plot holder has the same problem so he's going to deal with both.


I feel a nice bottle of wine winging it's way to him.


Thanks for your replies. I went to the plot earlier and the nest has settled down.

Not sure if things run in the family but one of my brothers is allergic to their sting. To cut to the chase I might be a tad bit sensitive to bites, not necessarily wasps but I've had some extreme reactions.


I've e-mailed the allotment committee to ask their advise. The plot is close to the main gate and compost heap close to the track.

Not sure the council will help as it's on the allotment...


It could be a while before the cold kills them, what are the chances of them swarming, I read somewhere they can get aggressive this time of year and I don 't know if I'm allergic to them, my older brother is. ...

I've a huge wasp nest on the compost heap. It has 3 bays and when I lifted the plastic there it was....It's about the size of a large football possibly larger as there were hollow tunnels leading from it.


How can I dispose of it, it's very lively...

Just ordered above, ankle still slightly swollen, I can walk on it though and when sat I need to keep it elevated. 


We've had a really wet summer, Scroggin. It's been  good for fruit and veg. The soil has never really dried out before another down pour. Lots of slugs and snails though I've had to use pellets.

I'm at home now, just been watching the Paralympic's.


Was going to ask the committee if anyone else on the allotment's have had any reactions from possible bites. It's the third time for me, I was in hospital last year with meningitis and encephalitis, I was told they were rare strains and wouldn't happen again, I picked up a virus from somewhere though.


I guess I'll never know how I've been infected think I'll start covering up more.


My older brother carries adrenaline injections because he's allergic to bee stings.

It's not as sore now, been on strong antibiotics since Wednesday, dr says I can go home when swelling has gone down and I can have oral antibiotics. 


Don't need to go to plot to water, chillies can dry on the plants and only a few toms left in the GH. 


I had a tetanus a couple of yrs ago.
