Hi Stephen,

Well done, really great ideas and excellent workmanship. Can I ask did you use "no longer required" house furniture for the greenhouse or did you purpose build same.

A good start, Stephen, and so good to see a vacant site being used this way. Good luck with the work, and the new community of allotment holders !
