My last successful year was 2017, when I managed 350 pounds. What with studying, periods of ill health, broken bones, working full time and (also working throughout) the wonderful Corona Virus, I haven't produced anything for 3 years. So I decided to give it a good go this year. Looking through my seeds, I am pleasantly surprised at the calibre of what I have, so I shall start everything, and see what survives.

Apologies for the double post. Before starting work. As can be seen in this picture, my allotment has not been properly dug for about 3 years, I planted some potatoes last year, but nothing other than that.

Progress. I'm hoping to make space for 2, maybe 3 plants. Basically the strongest plants will get planted. It is not clear which shows will take place this year. I have a couple of local shows (within 15 miles of me) and maybe the official GPC weigh off in Southampton, which is about 115 miles away. I'm hoping to produce something for the scales, and my PB is 407 lbs, so that's my target.
