Re: Reducing allotment plot sizes

I think the tiny starter plots are quite a good idea but, then having to give that up after a year and then going on a waiting list is not so good...especially if the waiting list is for a few years. I also think, they will still have the same problem when the people step up to a larger plot and rea...

Re: How would I check soil for contamination?

If you really want to bite the bullet Stephen, I think the Enviroment Agency are the people you should be speaking to...maybe ring the Council, i'm sure they will point you in the right direction.

At the end of the day, there shouldn't be any contamition leaking into the ground.

Re: Late Autumn Bits and Bobs.

With all this rain, there's an awful lot of arable land that hasn't got any crops in it this year...think Wheat prices might be fairly expensive next year!!

Looks some good stuff, Stephen...

Stunning photographs Geoff...I didn't realise I could right click and I didn't even realise I was using chrome... :) Just been over the allotments and picked a large bag of peas. They were sown as Jaguar but, they look more like a Mangetout, so not sure what has gone on there...still have the packet...

Re: Late Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Dear Primrose, are you sugestting you and I turn to the bottle... :)

Just been over to the allotment and picked some Runner beans, the last few Tomatoes and pulled some rather wonderful Autumn King Carrots...the carrots were from a very late sowing in August and have done really well.
