Sorry I can't answer your questions as its all new to me too but thought I'd pop on this thread and say hello! I've recently taken over an allotment - well, it was an allotment 25 years ago but it's getting there. My main jobs of the last month have been rotavating, picking out the twitch and getting a few potatoes, beans, caulis in so some actual growing can go on. My back is knackered from all the digging when I come in of an evening but I really love it. I find, for the few hours I'm down there, I don't give a seconds thought to school - or anything else come to that. And you can't beat a good old natter with one of the allotment natives. Ace!! What jobs has anyone else got for whit break? I'm putting up a fence to keep out the bunnies.
