How to stop your nuisance calls

Is anyone watching the programme on Channel 4 now on how to stop nuisance calls. It is very interesting. Watch on catchup if you get the chance.

Re: This is what I picked today

Thank you Monika yes I agree it is what allotments are about and even after fifteen years I still get a thrill from picking veggies and bringing it home and cooking.

I will top it with breadcrumbs and a bit of Parmesan cheese when we eat it. Made ...

Re: Pa snip Information on Plot Cost size etc.

There doesn't seem to be any plot on the site that is a particular size. They all seems to be different shapes and sizes. Ours seems a nice shape looking at some of the others.

Re: Define 'Working the Plot'

We are having terrible problems with our allotments but I am loath to put anything on here in writing as I fear a backlash. If only I could.
