For all new allotmenteer

Just to say that if you started with a field or pile of weeds last year dont be downhearted. I am year 2 and year 3 on my veg plot and the transformation can only be described a truely amazing. This year the soil i crumbly like cake mix;its easy to turn over and a joy to work and weed. :jSo;keep on in there it well worth the hard work of clearing and digging initially.:beer:
