Brought a flagstone home to try out my new angle grinder with a diamond cutter... works like a treat .. now to find a small generator set to take to the plot.. or failing that I'll mark and bring the flags home to cut - but thats the pits :(
Now a member of the 10 Ton club.... 2013  harvested 588 Kg from 165 sq mt..

Get an invertor for the car then you can do all the cutting you like at the allotment :blink: cheaper than a generator too ... however if using a 9 inch grinder you will need a mimimum 2000w invertor.
If it's not broke then leave it alone

Tidied my manure bins up. Discarded some spent sprout plants onto new compost heap. and dug over bed.
I used to work in a helium gas factory, but I walked out, no one talks to me like that.

Been raining pretty much non-stop all week - quite frustrating as am off work and could be doing stuff on the allotment. Have a small project to do at home though (reconstructing a small cold frame) so hopefully if the rain lets up I'll make a start trying to put that together.

This will be my last post on the 2011 thread...

Been busy again today removing the temporary old broken flags from the main pathway into the plot and replaced them with good ones.. brought home a few offcuts to cut with the diamond disc to suit some of the spaces..

31st December I belted down to the plot and dug a little until it got dark (only my 2nd trip this month!!!)

Brought home: leeks, Autumn King carrots and psb (so early this year by comparison with last year's).

Never keep your wish-bone where your back-bone ought to be.
