Hi

How does everyone wash their hands on their allotment ?

Anyone made a water pump sink ? If so how ?

Looking forward to the ideas

I put on nitrile gloves under my gardening gloves, and then just strip them off once I've gone through the gate and locked it, and give my hands a liberal "washing" in antibacterial  gel.  When I get home I give them a really good wash in soap and hot water.  I never used to use much in the way of hand cream, but I'm getting through loads of it now.  All of this handwashing certainly dries out your hands!

Hello when I was at college we made a water pump for a garden pond I remember it looked like an old mill with a water wheel in the centre it had a 1gallon tank in the top that ran water over the wheel and turned a  little dynamo that ran a pump in the pool to keep the tank full   jezza
