Well, here is my half-plot which I have just took on. The other half was viewed at the same time as mine with another newbie but I'm not sure if they have decided to take it on. Having had a chat with some of my new neighbours the plot was well used and maintained. I've made a start digging it over to get it…Continue

Some times it pays to complain about poor service
Maybe it's about time we got more like the Americans and didn't just be satisfied with less or poor service

Yesterday was a day for pruning the soft fruit bushes. The currants and gooseberries are now looking much healthier with a more open structure. They've had one mulch of compost but they'll get another in spring with a couple of handfuls of wood ash for each bush. Hopefully it'll be bumper crops again next year.

Hi to everone at UK Veg. Ive dabbled in growing a bit of veg in the past but have just been given my half plot allotment after a 2 year wait. Was not expecting that in December but really looking forward to the challange. I will upload some photos soon so as to keep track of my efforts ( good or bad). Any advice on starting or taking on an allotment for the first time will be gratefully received-lots of hard work lies ahead.
Meet my Girls, Hetty and Hilda my 2 chickens. We have had them for nearly 2 years now and they are truly part of family

When I got up this morning I could see that the hills were mantled in snow and looking very seasonal. We have the Lake District to the south, the Pennines to the east, the Southern Uplands to the north and the Galloway Hills to the west, all clothed in white. The only direction we don’t have hills is the south-west where the Solway widens into the open sea and that’s where the gales come from!!
