Just got one.....

I have just become a very happy owner of an allotment...I am so happy I have purchased some seeds and will be indoor sowing them at the end of the month...

I have already got a shed and a greenhouse ( it came with the plot )we have cleaned up and are raring to go, its quite a large plot so we are going to plan where things will get planted we have a book which has given us ( Hubby that is ) alot of info

any one else to be a proud new owner or a first year maybe who can share ups and downs?

Re: Just got one.....

How great!  I love planning the garden and starting seeds inside.  I'm going to start some chili pepper plants here soon.  Got some Calabrian dried peppers online a while back and will try to sprout some seeds.

We have a new block of land, but can't do anything with it for a few years.  Have fun!  And let us know how it goes.  smile
