As this will be my first full year of growing on the plot, I just want to learn, grow and have fun!

Get your horse manure starting to rot now for next year.

More peas, less squash.  A tidier allotment.  Try to find a good peat free compost that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Much the same here in North Derbyshire as has been mentioned.

Hoping to produce enough veg not to have to buy any.
One goal is to grow all the veg for that special meal next December.
we also rescue rabbits and guinea pigs,grow own veg

Oh that is a good one  :)  I actually managed that last year, even if I was scrabbling around a bit for greens.  I was so proud to serve it all up and announce it was home produced :D

That is on my list now for this year again.

We've just had the top plot taken off us and given the one next door. Which is in better condition.. Erm?
If they don't cultivate it this year they get it taken off them finally and we get it back. They've ignored it since 2015 so I wonder if they'll get motivated.

To try and keep organised & on top of things so it doesn't become a chore on top of work etc etc.

I dream of having tomatoes this year last year they didn't rippen and eventually lost the whole crop to blight for the 2nd year running.

One dream has come true into I'm ordering my greenhouse tomorrow yay!!

After several years where growing was very much a secondary thing.  Now that life is a little easier I'd like to just enjoy being there.  If I can have a little more continuity that would be good.  I'd like to take care of my crops a little more to ensure better harvests.  Mostly I'm looking forward to a warm spring evening looking back at a week tended plot with a glass in hand

While heeling plants in (growmore's in the post) we found potatoes. So we'll start chitting them at some point soon.
