Allotment first timer

( photo / image / picture from Coopes's Garden )
Well here it is, my very first allotment plot.( well not actually mine,) I was number eight on the list but I helped a mate dig over his allotment, got to know people on the site, which helped me get the allotment from one of the members who was not really interested in all the digging.
I can now see why he wasn't interested, with all the bindweed and other weeds I have had to dig up, but getting there. There are loads of pictures of the allotment on the forum, I will post more on here as well.
I also started a small plot on my back garden 4mx4m raised bed, I bought small 6x4 plastic greenhouse from B&Q, it was one that had been built up and on show for two years, was a little damaged, so got it for £50. I did a small repair on the opening window, just like new now.

In the greenhouse I have tomato seeds broccoli, cauliflower, and I have put some peas in to start them off, my wife has also bought some flower seeds, dont ask me what, no idea. I also got a water butt off a mate, trouble is I have water running off the garage and the games room (shed) so fills up very quick, I have to keep emptying it when it rains.
