    Default I'm Back!

    Hello Folks

    Although Iíve been following various threads I havenít been logged in for a while so decided it was time to re-introduce myself, the reason will be obvious!

    A few things have happened since I was last here, main ones being open heart surgery in November 2016 and moving from deepest Tottenham to Shireoaks in Nottinghamshire last year.

    Due to other health ďfeaturesĒ I havenít worked this year and was really getting bored, then ďsort ofĒ out of the blue I got an allotment

    All of a sudden I feel alive again, hoping to get some bits planted this year.

    Well I did until I visited it today, needs a bit or work(The plot on the right)! That said it will keep me out of trouble

    Hope you are all well.

    All the best all, Danny

    Welcome back to the vine

    I think with excuses like open heart surgery we can let you off not being here much .
    Your new plot will keep you busy for a while. Looks like a lovely empty canvas so you can do what you ever you want with it.

    Welcome back, are the shed and green house yours? Wonder if you've got any useful bushes in there somewhere. I'd have a bit of a wade around and see if there's anything lurking before taking a strimmer to it all.

    Welcome back. Glad you've recovered enough from surgery and all to take on a lottie. Should be a lot of fun. Plenty of time to get things in the ground. But don't overdo it!
