The Allotment has nearly had a clean shave


#21

My grass is crap,the astro turf will be going down hopefully soon.


#22

I can’t imagine it would smoke nearly so well.

#23

Need pictures, both of grass and the artificial stuff


#24

Wank

At least the xmas tree looks healthy;


#25

How it was last June;


#26

Were you a football league groundsman back in the seventies ??


#27

The canine culprit is in both pics - grass don’t like dog pee :laughing: it goes Patchy


#28

Is it some kind of ‘Spot the difference’ competition?

There’s a bike by the shed in the first pic? No Christmas tree? Otherwise, I’m struggling.


#29

Not long now,i’m expecting premier team calls for ground maintinance tips.


#30

Newport County might be interested :smile:


#31

Sorting out the bottom end of the garden. Had to shift 3 ft high x ten foot deep midden heap, even found a buried water butt in there!

Green house up and for of the six raised bed done.


Borders in the rest of the garden are being re built and a new path popped in. Plan to complete this by end March, nearly there.


#32

Fair play! That looks like a load of really heavy work…


#33

Cheers, a lot of those border stones are 25 to 30kg!

Pallet sides make great raised beds. They come complete with zinc plated hinges, a quick coat of preservative and away you go. Stack them two high, bloody ideal.


#34

Raked the lawn today, getting ready for first cut


#35

I dream of having grass to cut


#36

I thought this thread was about something else entirely…must be my mind…

Anyway, on my 6.5 mile walk the other day (did I mention I’d done a walk?) I passed a number allotments all of which had very dodgy looking blokes with white vans furiously throwing courgettes and iceberg lettuces in the back of them.

Black market.


#37

No chance of that if your groupies keep coming over to hear your horns


#38

A young Jim?


#39

will someone please come and dig up my front garden, lay a suitable base for a drive and create a drive from gravel…


#40

That was some walk… Spain and back :smiley:
