Christmas comes early

Yay! Onion sets! Haven't a bed prepared for them, but will have to do so now or they'll go to waste. Also Nemaslug, which has to be used by end of October - wasn't going to bother but I'll have to now or they'll go to waste.

Slightly confused, however, as have two parcels which have been at post office since Saturday and which I assumed were onion sets and Nemaslug. Hmm.

Nemaslug, incidentally, is weird powdery stuff that apparently contains thousands of tiny tiny nematodes that are absorbed by slugs and then kill them. Moo haa haa haa....

Don't keep us in suspense! What were the two mystery parcels? How did the nemathingys work out? Did the sets go in? Enquiring minds want to know!

Hi just stumbled over your blog looking for anything vague that might encourage me (or put me off!) getting an allotment. We have been advised of some land available in our small village (also Cambridgeshire!) for lotties. Will keep reading and let you know what we decide! Cheers TAD.

Avidly waiting for Nov blogs!!!
Had allotment(Teignmout /Devon) for 13 years alas due to invasion of bindweed lottie has been covered almost 95% with thick black plastic for last 6 months-
( it's held down with water filled plastic milk containers )borrowed black plastic from neighbouring lottie holder!
Have 3 warnings re lotties beware of triffid like raspberries and stawberries plus beware re allowing perpetual spinach to go to seed ,it took me quite a while to rid the lottie of spinach-don't even know why I grew it -I certainly never ate any!!!

Sorry, been really astonishingly crap this last month. Managed to get some onions in, and most of garlic, though rucksack now stinks of garlic as I left the package in there, so all the stuff I carry round in it stinks too. Lovely. Garlic hairbrush, anyone?

Jean, I've found that black plastic encourages my bindweed, by holding down the growth of everything else. However this could well just be me.
