Clicking on any of the pictures will open them at full size in the browser window, which means you will have to use the 'back' button to return to the main pages, whereas clicking to the left or right of any picture will open them in a new window, if you fancy a closer look at any of the piccies we've posted! We've included a Google Earth satelite picture of our plots and this years planting plan at the bottom of the page, next to each other. If you choose the Earth view on the satelite image you can rotate the image until it is lined up with the planting plan, then use the arrows in the plan to scroll from Plot 2 to Plot 1.

RIP Bella

RIP Bella, our furbaby who passed over the Rainbow Bridge today after a short illness. Bella was a rescued Great Dane / Alsatian cross who came to us aged about 12 months in 2006 from Manchester Dog's Home.

A more loving friend it would be impossible to find, loyal, full of fun and love, always ready for a cuddle and always ready to defend us from anything, including the postie!

 She tool ill last week, mot being able to keep anything down, after a visit to the vet on Friday we were hopeful of her recovering, but she didnt get any better this weekend, so she went happily into the vets today for exploratory surgery to see if there was a blockage in her tummy (which is what we thought it was), only for the vet to find 2 large tumours on her spleen, which were inoperable, there was nothing to be done and she would have deteriorated quickly and been in pain, so she stayed asleep.

She will always be remembered with love, and is now free of pain and hurt to play with her soul sisters, Willow and Lady, whom we will all be reunited with in the Summerlands. - A new Blog where we can post piccies of our Dogs, past present and future!

Hope you enjoy!

First video - the seedlings at home

Just a quick video from my new phone, showing the seedlings covering every south facing windowsill in the house! Hope you enjoy it :)
Just back from the AGM, at Moss View Allotments, we are having our Plant Sale on Sunday the 20th May 2012, so it you need any fruit /veg or flower plants / seedlings, or fancy a delish cake, or even want to try (or buy) some of our honey, please pop along between 11am and 3pm

Ive been mad at work recently, very short staffed (1 vacancy and 1 off sick has meant a total of 63 hrs this week, but 3 days off now, so some serious plt time methinks :), but at least I am getting the hang of it and making inroads into the performance problems!

The plot is still behind plan, but we have a few weeks now to get it prepared, so weather permitting we should be able to get it sorted out, lots of seedlings at home, so we;ve no choice but to get it sorted asap! 

Had a new phone with a video camera on it, so going to try and record some video of the plot to share with you all, fingers crossed I can work it all out!
