Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Interesting reading. I had decided not to grow potatoes, onions and carrots this year but may have to review that now!

Ah yes, it's in the newspaper so it must be true!  Talk about causing problems...

I'll try that again!

Start by sharing out equitably what paid employment remains.

It is downright daft to have one person overworked and stressed out, with another completely out of work but stressed out by searching for a non-existent job.

Both should be on a three-day week and each should be able have a productive allotment.

It is time that urban Golf Clubs were morphing into Allotment Associations.

There's more satisfaction and well-being in a well-grown cabbage than in a well-driven golf ball..........................................sums up my sentiments exactly

Mulch, mulch, mulch is the answer. Last year we had a month without rain, our neighbour allotment watered everyday, we watered perhaps once a week but that is because we mulch everything as we always have a spell of dry weather in the year. The only things that really suffered were new plantings.cheers

Have you been reading the New Economics Forum Kaye? They suggest something like that.cheers
