Ronald you sound like a man who has an allotment spreadsheet! grin

Well in that case, do you do veg boxes? I'll have a weekly medium size, please! Congratulations ronald - it sounds like you deserved to win with that wonderful variety of produce. What a great way to provide your own home grown food.

blush Carol you might be sorry you asked that but here goes
Durham Spring Cabbage Celtic Cabbage Tundra Cabbage
Fillbasket Sprouts Medalion Cauliflower Marathon Calabrese
Flyaway Carrots Countess Parsnips Marion Swede
Giant Pascal Celeriac Musselborough Leek Schitzue Japanese Onions
Arctic King Winter Lettuce Winter hardy White Lisbon Spring Onions

The Carrots and Celeriac are under covers but still in the ground (mainly to keep the rain off)
Well you did ask grin
Vegetables and Flowers that are ideal for picking are my speciality, not too good on pot plants
Anyway thanks for all your support smile

Anyone who keeps an allotment going has my respec' too. It is one thing pottering around the garden and another getting down to the allotment and being organised.

Well done, ronald. I found my allotment a peaceful place to be, perhaps because of the hard work but also because of the sense of achievement. A good achievement for you! Congrats.

Wow - RESPECT to you Ronald (as my son would say). I shall know who to call on for allotment advice in future. smile

I have won the local area best allotment cup for the third time.There are about 3000 allotments (only 20 or so went in for it but 3000 sounds better)
