Ill be getting the ground ready over the winter to make sure its full of nutrients for next year, everyone tells you to use well rotted manure but I get fresh stuff mixed with hay or sawdust which I mix in the beds between now and February & have never had a problem with anything not growing, in fact nearly everything does quite well. I also throw some chicken feed in there every now and again and mix it all together. My daughter will be 4 next year so i have sourced a climbing frame and slide from freecycle and have transformed an area over the allotment for her to play so i will be getting that ready and also ill be making some beds for her to grow stuff in. For me its business as usually next year, propagating propagating propagating to make sure everything is ready to go and of course keeping and eye on the weeds. Richard thanks for the seeds, i will put them to good use next year and hopefully share some photos of their progress.
