Thanks for the information my allotment is directly opposite my house and I made 5 trips this morning bringing all seedlings from the greenhouse which was an awful lot and every pot that I have so I have a very crowded house now and then found out that we could still go to our allotments but things may change so its all staying here for the time being                                      Hope you all ok and stay safe

This is good news.  I was ill last year and nearly gave up  my plot.   But decided to continue.   My husband is doing a great job digging and we have really enjoyed the last few days of sunshine.  I really feel that growing  food might become important.    My biggest concern is the gate.  I saw someone touch his nose and lipped just seconds before opening the gate.  I am sure  he did not even realise he had done it.   But it has  made me rather more careful.

Nice to see you posting again Deigeroo, I was only thinking about you yesterday.  I am glad that your husband is well enough to help you.
Take care and wear gloves and wash you hands after going through the gate.

We now have a no visitors rule, really to stop people without plots claiming they are going there when  stopped by the police, like I was this  this morning. I told him if he stopped anybody else claiming to be going there to ask them for the combination of the lock. If they give him a number send them home it is a keyed lock. He was alright with it and asked if there was any plots going spare.

Forgot all about that, I have been guarding a big container of the good old stuff for years. Perfect for the wheelie bin handles and my wooden gates at home. That will save on the anti bacterial kitchen cleaner spray.
