Do you have your carrots covered in fine netting like enviromesh? If not, then you are in trouble - sorry!

Anyone growing carrots should get down to their local hardware shop and buy four 16foot le ...

Everything coming on nicely there NB!

I'd say the curly leaves on your tomatoes are the tomato plant reacting to too much heat? All mine done that last year in my greenhouse at home, the leaves cur ...

Wow Dirt Digger, that's a savage allotment you have there.

I was up looking at a new Allotment Scheme (with a view to renting a plot) in Balbriggan run by Fingal CoCo. They even have pigs! The only ...
