      The back of the plot with a half decent shed, just needs the wood treating and a new roof once the tree is cut back..

          @Jack McHammocklashing

          Thanks Jack, it seems to be mostly top growth and it's all come up with a good rake see my next pic, there is the odd onion I keep finding but too soggy to leave and hope for growth I think.

          I can't wait to get it looking like something that is owned.

              Hi all another update nicely cleared up to the red currants, going to get the raised beds in next.
              Anyone got any ideas what I can grow this late in the season?

                          Thanks all got a few things, for planting but can't find seed potatoes anywhere to plant for Christmas
                          Anyone suggest a website that may have some or even just 2-3 for the family?

                          Thanks James

                              Hi everyone how are we?

                              Couple of pics to show the progress so far, it's actually starting to look like an allotment now.

                              I've had to go out and get a cordless drill/screwdriver so got a decent one that does everything and is so powerful I'm amazed at how good they are now.

                              Thanks for looking, James
