Long overdue update

A quick update - the wine is doing well, the sloe gin doesn't taste like cough medicine any more and I'm busy planning the allotment ready to start buying seeds soon. It's less like a bog now, as in you can actually walk on it unlike lats time I went up there (and the car got stuck in the field). Also planning on using a very large amount of chicken wire to keep the rabbits off. Full list of planned fruit and veg to follow soon.
I've used the online planner at growveg.com and it does seem like it's going to be worth forking out the fairly low yearly subscription, mainly due to the full timeline it produces based on what you've put on the plan and the fact it can handle crop rotation for you as well. There is now a very organised and pretty plan on the wall in front of me that I'm sure is nothing like how the plot will end up looking :)
