I have been on the The Grapefine Forum http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/grapevine/ to ask for advice on what to grow, I actually asked about onions as I found out there where some winter onions which we can grow. I have just order some electric and radar Onions from ebay. Hopefully should get them before the weekend so I can plant them at the weekend and move some of the carpet :-)

The picture is Steve working hard while I chat to our neighbour. Well this was the first time we met so its important to get to know your allotment neighbours
This is my hard work!
We still have a bit more to move but we made a good dent in the pile.
I also planted some Peas and some more Garlic. I love Garlic. I grew some in my back garden ( Elephant Garlic) and they worked out really well.
Also picked 2 green pepers as they where ready to eat.

I also have peppers, my mum bought me a pepper plant which I have got about 4 peppers of the plant. I did have them in my garden in pots but decided to plant them on my allotment, its a bit late for them to be out but they seem to be doing all right. I might pick the bigger ones tomorrow
This is the far View. As you can see there's not alot of Veg BUT this is due to the season. I ran around High Wycombe collecting old carpet to cover the plot as the weeds where growing like mad! Once we get more veg in we will use the carpet for paths.

We have been growing a small amount of Veg in our back garden, we managed to get a few potatoes, Garlic, Runner Beans and peppers. The onions got eaten, the tomatoes we left outside for too long and the Carrots didn't really grow.
We still have leeks and Butternet squash growing in our back garden. Not sure if the Butternut will work out but we will have to see. We have great hopes for the Leeks
We hope with the allotment we will learn more knowledge and more things to eat.
