This is part 3 of a thread which started a couple of years is the link if you want to look back...lots of familiar posters...who give good advise...and share their day down on the plot... so if you have an allotment whether just starting out or are an experienced allotmenteer...feel free to drop in... or add to the discussion...

    Haven't had chance to get to the plot today but the weather seems to be picking up, it got quite hot in the sun today, hope it keeps up till the weekend and I can get my spuds in.

    Happy Growing everyone...

    Wish our soil was dry enough to put spuds in, champing at the bit here.

    Zoomer temp site rep as one of the two really ill, but she is hoping to come back, so temp rep - he wanted to do one quick I guess, we spotted him yesterday up my end doing a pre inspection look with a plot holder - power gone to his head

    Hello,I’ve just had my allotment for a couple of weeks,very much an amateur! I did start a discussion on another thread and got some good advice. We have managed to dig one bed and will hopefully do another one soon.  The plan is to grow some potatoes first, I’m wondering what else can I grow with the potatoes? Should I add any manure before planting the potatoes? All tips gratefully received!
