New Year New Plans............
Hello all, and a belated Happy New Year to you all! have been busy since i was last on the site but not as busy as i would have liked!! i was laid up for a while since last Sept and due to that and everything else that was happening i just hadn't the time i would have liked to give to our various projects and to this site! well i feel to be on the mend and we are really looking forward to the new season, i have had to take stock of things and due to the fact that i have to take things easier i have had to let the allotment go, in a way i feel sad but to be honest i wouldn't be able for it anymore energy or time wise! so we have redesigned the garden and plan to put a couple of new veg beds on a spare piece of ground adjoining the old Orchard so we will still be producing a fair amount of fruit and veg, it will just be more manageable and less time consuming! will stick up a few photos tomorrow, its nice to be back..............
