The website is finally closed and no more so any who were members there you are cordially invited to join this group instead. It's for all allotmenteers and urban gardeners locally from all allotments - growing friendships (!)

Remember remember the Bonfire night for allotmenteers at Forster Road allotment tonight and clean up weekend tomorrow. See you all there. I need to clean up our plot too, put it to bed for the winter I think.

the clocks go back an hour, Clive drops round the allotment seed catalogue - definitely late autumn!

First frost of the Autumn expected tonight, gardeners beware, make sure your fruit & veg where necessary is kept warm iwth straw or fleece, or risk losing all that hard work.

Harvested lots of sweetcorn, butternut squash, swede, potatos and parsnips this weekend. Looking to pull quite a bit before the first frosts kill them all off. Then it will be tidy up time and turn the compost and cover the ground until Spring. A lot of thinning out of raspberry canes if anyone wants any.

There's an improved list of allotment sites in LB Bromley - originally based on that one from - here - or more precisely, on this Google Map

I'd be interested if any members of this group are on their allotments' committees, or otherwise in a position to make contributions.

The virtual shed has flown to here from due to Ning's new pricing policy - welcome all!
