i have been posting on this board for a few months now, since I was starting a plot for the first time and was clueless.  I have had loads of good advice and thought i'd thank you by showing what ive done with it.  hopefully next year I'll have more experience and will beable to give a few tips myself.

I have got blight in my spuds and my turnips taste bitter but the rest is doing great.  I have harvested  a cabbage, peas, carrots, turnip, salad, beetroot and my brocoli, caulis, sweetcorn, beans, parsnips, squashes, herbs, toms, aubegines, peppers, chillis and courgettes are starting to get big and flower........a real success!!

i love the raised beds and am going to more next year on the lower plot.  I have also tried a 3 sisters bed which seems to be working. I am going away tomorrow so i may not reply till the weekend!

Avoid fruit and nuts.  You are what you eat.

That looks lovely - only had our plot since May so appreciate all the hard work you've put in.
Felt very smug today when my sister told me she paid £3.50 for a bag of runner beans, when I knew I had loads in the fridge and hundreds more coming along on my plot!!

Plot clearing advice. Opinions and advice valued.
