Hi!

I have been reading these forums a lot last couple of days, learning lots of new information. I live in north Wales, and got an overgrown allotment about a month ago, been playing catchup ever since. I've always enjoyed gardening, and have had a tiny veggie plot and have done a lot in containers, but never realised just how much I love gardening until I got this allotment. Lot of hard, exhausting, 'arrive-10am-not-getting-home-until-10.30pm' work, but loving it.

I like keeping my muscles exercised and have silly weight lifting/toning equipment, but I swear, after digging an overgrown plot my muscles have never been in such good shape! Lol.

Anyway a big hello!

Lou

Thanks for the welcome Mrs Bee. In fact, I haven't used my thigh toner or the weights since I got my allotment. You are right, no need. Allotment gives me a much better work out.

As for the username, lol! I spent a long time trying to think of a username - am totally useless at that sort of thing. It was literally all I could think of. Inspiration can come from the strangest of places  :D  ;)

Welcome. 'Tis a lovely friendly place.
Just a warning - I actually got some palpitations the other day moving paving slabs about the plot - so don't over do it !  :lol: :lol:
Enjoy and don't work too hard.

Pip pip,
Balders
