Hello. Well this is my first post so I thought I would share with you the progression of my allotment. I went for raised beds because of the waterlogged state this area can have. As you can see I have matting for the paths witch I am in the progress of digging out for the top soil. I managed to have a good load of manure delivered and I distributed this in my five raised beds. In one of the beds I put manure in then placed cardboard over then put manaure on the cardboard and then top soil from the paths. hoping this would depress the weeds. still plenty to do......

    Great stuff Stewart. Keep us updated. Just one question.... Looks like a nice strong padlock on your gate, but can't the allotment burglars, just walk round your fence? :)

    Hahaha. Barnsley Burglars are a bit slow Jerry, If you don't tell them I wont. lol. Hopefully the rest of the fencing will arrive next week. I've been busy getting two beds ready for early potatoes.

    Wow, that's going to be some plot. Will the sun still get in? I know it's no different from most gardens...

    Hi Jerry. The side fencing will only be about 3 or 4 feet high with a border. I'm hoping every one else will be putting up 6 feet of fencing at the front to make the allotments secure infact the fencing has just been delivered. Time to have time off work I think. lol.
