Shopping and Allotment news..

I went out today for a webcam, and came back with a bag of compost, a red primula, a gorgeous bird of paradise, some Asiatic lillies, a pot, a saucer, and a spray plant mister...
I did get the webcam but my computer cd/dvd thingy wont work so i cant get it to run!!!
My amazon books have dispatched so they should come tomorrow.
I got the allotment application form.I was underwhelmed by how small it was.A 2 sided piece of thin A4 paper!!
The list of Allotment sites was arranged by town like Castleford, Knottingley,Wakefield. They were numbered, but only just by street.
Like Barratts road. No clue as to where it was.. I looked up each street on multimap and scrolled through the list to Wakefield west yorkshire.
The rules were : No animals except poultry or pidgeons.
No erecting buildings/structures without permission.
That two thirds of the allotment will be cultivated.
You have to agree to the council allotment tenancy.
I put the three that were closest to work or here. Fingers crossed that i dont wait long. It posted it back this afternoon so i hope it goes smoothly.

Thanks Oldroses, I have left it in the lap of the gods now.I hope there is a vacant plot.Expect lots of before and after pictures.I never took photos before of the old garden, although through the passage of time you could see it develop.
