Hello all hope your all well. Just joined up so thought I would say hello. Only just got an allotment so just really getting in to the growing our own game. We took on a big plot only a few months ago. So only just getting sorted ready to maybe plant some winter veg. Loving spending time down there even thought it's only really been tidying up and digging. it's slowly taking shape and we have just acquired a 12x8 green house for free so having fun dismantling that with only a few broken pains luckily. Like I say I'm a newbie but loving reading and watching all the tips that are available. Thanks again and look forward to many years of progress reports and reporting my success and failures. Happy growing and planting all 

Tony , HULL

Hi Tony, sounds like you've got yourself sorted & do what loads of us recommend & take it gently,gently & dig over bit by bit but thoroughly. Winter veg sounds like a good plan, & cover the undug & dug areas to save work later on

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
