thanks both , sorry YD if you had only asked when we lived at seaton  
 ,DD there was quite a lot of sweat involved in that last year ,we took out somewhere between 48 and 60 t of concrete to get that lot in ! it was 18" deep in a few places .im still puzzled though ! both pics were saved as 600x400 and they are different sizes, have you reduced them more ? if so what to? im a technophobe and only do simple ,could you please take this into account when you answer

Glyn, to get the pictures in the post I opened your Photobucket link.
When I viewed the picture on my screen I right clicked it and copied the "Copy Image Location" option to my clipboard.
I then went back to writing my message to this forum and clicked the "Img" button on the top line of the Subject window.
This opens the "[img]" start of the link description - where I pasted the link from my clipboard.
To finish I clicked the "Img" icon again and the end of the link "[/img]" finishes off the link from the Photobucket source to display YOUR picture in the OTG post.
It reads and sounds more difficult than it is - but your picture is automatically displayed - I had no input in the resizing of it.

Seaton is a bit distant from Budleigh Salterton and it's more than a tram ride to get there for me!  
Martyn

I've cleared the brussels and parsnips and finished the composting/liming on the vegetable side of the allotment.

Next job is to finish lining up the tubs on the concrete and filling them. Some already done so that's not too urgent as it's not growing weather yet.

There's the area under the fruit trees to sort out as well. That'll be a lot of weeding and seeing to get some flowers in the area.

Pictures may well follow.

Had a nice Saturday morning on the plot with lots of visitors - well offered them Jerusalem artichoke tubers to plant. Got quite a bit of tidying up done. Who put all the chickweed there?

Now the forecast mentions sleet and snow overnight Friday along with the rain.

So the plot looks tidy but the growing fingers are getting itchy. Tis the time of the year!

Been barrowing compost onto the pea and bean beds, that's hard work! And generally tidying up. Rhubarb is coming on quickly, first pick from the forces next week?

Fantastic will not show you our mess everything shot to seed and just starting to put winter seeds in trays. For next year shade cloth over every thing I hope.
