Hi all, another week of progress here at my allotments to share wit
you, I don't know how you are finding the mild weather but some of th
Fruit & Vegetables are getting a new lease of life, regards Steve.
I'm not sure I understand allotments and if you could briefly explain I
would be grateful. In other words, what the bloody hell are
allotments? As a yank, I don't get it. I mean no disrespect
Charlie, smack dab in the middle of the us.

considering how expensive the cost of land is here in the UK, hope thi
help explain them better regards Steve
I enjoyed your page. These set-ups are called community gardens in
North America. I did a search and was surprised to see that my
city has 30 of these. My mom has or had one even though she
has a nice sized backyard. I might also look into getting one if
there seems to be some extra plots just going to waste. I look
forward to your updates.

that you requested. Example: saving allotment.
In your case, an allotment is where you use a parcel of land for your
personal use. Along the way, you provide deeper soil and more fertile
conditions. That's the way it used to be. Also, added to the equation, are
long term unknowns from current fertilizers and insecticides.
No. After seeing this, so far, mild autumn, I don't look forward to winter
being any better. There is a purpose in zero vicinity F temperatures
