Hello all

Took over my first and overgrown allotment a few months ago (15ftx50ft).
Starting to get a grip of it and making plans for this year.
Been a difficult few months what with the weather and heavy clay soil.
Iíve cleared half the plot of weeds; dug over about a quarter and covered all the plot with a black membrane to suppress the weeds.

Today I installed a base for a shed. I probably will go for a 7x5 or 6x4.  Yet to decide on where to buy. Donít really want to spend too much money, though judging by reviews the cheap ones from diy stores I shouldnít expect too much.

Iíve also got a 4x2m polytunnel to unpack and put up. Again cheap and cheerful so not expecting it to last long without serious reinforcement and battening down against the wind.

Any advice about the cheaper end of sheds (other than donít buy one!  :nowink:) appreciated.

Exciting times and looking forward to the year ahead.
Thanks
PS the photo attached is the overgrown plot full over mature weeds and dock plants  :D

Hi and welcome  :)

At least if the weeds are growing lushly you know you have half decent soil  ;)

Thanks everyone.
I managed to put up my polytunnel frame this afternoon - apart from one joint that I will need to drill a new hole in due to misalignment. Took me two and a half hours to do all by myself. I would have done it in about 45 minutes if I had waited for the weekend and my partner for her to hold the frame, but I was too keen to wait.
