Im heading up to my new allotment plot tomorrow, whats the key tasks I need to get sorted?

Its already been rotivated & well manured so should be ready to start planting seeds.

I know carrots are ok to go straight in to the ground but what else & what needs to be started on the window ledge?

If recently manured, avoid carrots and parsnips as they will fork. Potatoes are good now, as are members of the onion family. Also Broad Beans and early peas. You could start summer turnips in modules.
