Hi is anyone thinking of taking part in the University of Sheffield and National Allotment Association research which will estimate total own grown fruit and veg production across UK?
Details on if you want to panticipate.

    Thanks a lot. Will be interesting to take part. I need to get measuring my plot sizes. Not too much of a problem recording yields as I do that anyway.

    I done it last year (paper version) I am just waiting for the envelope to arrive to post it back in to the lady.  It was really well set out and easy to do, as I keep an allotment diary anyway I don't need to keep a copy but they do send it back if you want which can be really helpful for future ref.
