Hello All!!
« on: March 20, 2016, 18:11 »
Just joined up to this great forum after being a watcher lol (not stalking really).

Into my 3rd season of allotmentism (is that a word?) and getting bolder every year!! My allotment was luckily a plot which someone had abandoned before harvest and was in a fairly good state by the Oct when I took over. 

I have green roots so to speak, worked in a huge nursery from 13 to 16 and learnt a lot about plants of all kinds.  I,m the youngest on our allotment section so get some attention from the old heads who offer great advise.  I,m finding my feet and learning new things every year and hope fully will fit in nicely amongst you like minded people.

Got so many questions to ask, but will take it one step at a time.

Glad to be hear

Paul

Moving from lurker to new member was a good step  ;)

Welcome to the forum and do have a look at the info links on the green banner at the top  :)

I had a massive blitz on it when I had some good weather, boy did my muscles ache.  Cant wait till I can get planting, just got to decide what to put in this year.

Hi from another newbie, Paul,

I suppose I could be accused of being a lurker because I joined this site last year... the only difference being - I didn't actually do any lurking!  :)

Welcome to the site  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
