    Quote from: "SalJ1980"
    Title: The leaning shed of Sal’s:

    Description:The pallets that the shed is standing on have started to rot in the middle, hence the lean. It makes getting stuff in and out fun, as the door only opens 6 inches or so before it sticks on the pallet, then I have to stand on one of the rotten boards to dip it out of the way and open the door further - which in turn tilts the whole shed another inch or so!!! Once the door is open and wedged on the top of the pallet the whole thing is quite sturdy though!

The photo needs to be attached to this thread.

As stated in the rules, voting will not take place until 24th May, when a poll will be created from the entrants. There may be many photos none of us have seen yet, so it's only fair to judge when you've seen them all.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
