    Get the kids to do all the digging, saves your back and will keep them occupied

    Nice plot you've got there and keep us updated.

    Your allotment looks great - but I have "growing area envy". Have just recently got a plot of my own but it is only about 33' x 16' and, having relinquished a much larger but less convenient plot, I am wondering how to best make use of my small allotment.

    Look forward to more pics as work progresses.

    Thanks for the kind words of encouragement!
    The kids can be a help, sometimes!

    I wasnt too bad after the digging, just a bit generally knackered, but i dont really do any exercise these days.
    Hoping to get back down there early tomorrow morning (if i get up in time)

    Ive been back!
    Woke up at 8, popped down the plot.
    Spread three bags of manure over one of the 'plots'.
    finished digging the other 'plot'
    sorted out the compost bins.
    planned where the bean trench will go, and the rasps and the rhubarb and sweetcorn.
    Thats it for now, although i know where the potatoes wont be going next year - where i keep digging them up now! lol
    I think the boss got some pics, will update when i can.
