New allotment OMG...

You've been busy Roy, nice clear site.

That's what I like about allotmenteering, whilst we all have a common interest, sites can be so different. Do you have a lot of time to spend on the plot?

I'm hoping to go to the plot this weekend but it depends on it being rain free

If there's anything you want from the list Paris just PM me. They are spare seeds, if I get anything in return it's a bonus

No probs will PM you both, sage and sweet marjoram would be nice, I've got the others and am trying to grow bulb fennel again this year so don't need any fennel.

Roy - I bought a four shelved plastic GH about 6yrs ago for the back garden. It blew over in the first year as it wasn't anchored down. Wouldn't be without it though, it's fab as an over flow for seedlings when the GH gets full..  

Was going to put the allotment one on concrete slabs and screw it down, if it's not used in winter the cover can come off and the wind will just blow through the frame.  

Hope the weathers kinder this weekend, I'e some none digging jobs to do.

Just bought a book called Making the Most of Your Glorious Gluts. It shows how to store, preserve, dry and freeze your harvest and the recipe ingredients are mainly stuff which is grown on a plot.

Looking forward to your channel fruitcake.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but The garden superstore do economy troughs, 40cm and 60cm, 3 for £8.52 or 3 for £10.89.

You could use them as liners. Go to the site, click on troughs and then economy one's.

Mitch, 

Gg's and other posters have posted some good links onto youtube about allotmenteering,, it's worth going back and reading some of the previous postings ...if you are just starting out it'll provide inspiration during the winter months and keep you going until the Spring...

LK that reminds me of all the different plastic containers you can get to cook different things in the micro wave, I bought an egg poacher, used it once, the poached eggs tasted like rubber, I'm sure they'd have bounced of the floor.

I do have a poached egg pan though, wouldn't be without it but then I can't cook an egg in hot water it ends up in a zillion pieces.
