    Cool Hi everyone

    hi everyone I'm Nina!
    I've always been a bit of a green fingered person but in July hubster & I became owners of our own allotment which has taken a fair bit of our time /effort/money & a love of using our teenage boys as slaves (I'm only half kidding) we have discovered two established apple trees, a cherry tree, numerous blackcurrant & gooseberry bushes a possible pear tree, three or four rhubarb plants & a whole heap of glass!

    Most of last year was a clearing job as the nettles were a good 5/6ft high. The vine weed was enough to make me cry & the brambles were a good inch or two diameter but we managed to get some cucumbers, tomatoes, jalapeños, potatoes & our Halloween Pumpkins out of the allotment we've a polytunnel so I can get a good start on most things & hopefully I can get my second lot of brassicas out & netted before our local pheasant Nigal destroys them again!!! At home birds aren't much of an issue as we have cats but the allotment has its own pheasant
