I was in my element today. We went to a community recycled wood place.
They get wood from all over the midlands.
I got 4 raised beds and my daughter went mad and got lots of stuff for her new garden, a couple of tables made from cable reels, 6 raised beds and some shelves.
I will be back once I have measured up the rest of my beds on the allotment .
I am going to get some decent wood to edge my beds and tidy up my plot.
I will measure up tomorow and they will even cut it to size.
Can't wait . Autumn tidy up and replanting coming on.

That sounds great. Not sure... I assume you do have to pay something?

Whereabouts is this place? I work in Birmingham so it might be feasible for me to get there.

Had another great morning at wood recycling. Going down allot next dry spell to measure up for scaffolding boards for raised beds. Some wonderfull stuff there, I could have bought loads . I have to be restrained until I use what I have got!
