    Default A bit taken aback.

    Hi,

    went down the lottie this afternoon. I normally go in the morning and stay all day on a Saturday but my daughter came over so hence went later.

    Anyway, written in chalk on my (new) shed door was written and I quote "Please put your plot number on your plot!"

    Well, there is and has been since I took the plot on 3 months ago today, a big log stood on its side with a No 1 in a chrome plate screwed to it. It is right at the entrance to my plot.

    Part of me feels like adding a note asking the author to identify themselves so I can get them some glasses. The site convenor would know the log was there and so I'm quite bemused.

    Whaaaat? Some people! And you're number one for heaven's sake, it's not as if they can have lost count.
    This is a nice new shed is it? A bit of shed-envy here perhaps?

    Just wonder whether no 2 and so forth got similar requests?

    Is it part of your site rules? You've obviously fallen victim to the local allotment Stasi.

    Must say I've never seen a plot with a number on it.
