Hi from a very snowy Midlands.
I have have had an allotment for about 3 years now. Last year whist working full time I managed to have home grown veg each week for most of the summer and autumn. It is divided into 60 raised beds with a shed, greenhouse and a pond. In my second year on the site I beat all the men and grew a 4 1/2 stone , Big Max, Pumpkin. Hence my user name. Looking forward to being able to chat rather than just browse.
Sorry I am not brill with computers and stuck my hello on the end of the last persons hello .
So above is my hello again. Hopefully in the right place this time.

Hello Pumpkinpie :wave: I'm new too :iconbiggrin: also new-ish at gardening (2 years). Don't seem to be any good at flowers so far but just sent for some chamomile lawn seeds. Fingerscrossed.

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
