Had a good day at allotment yesterday,at least it stayed dry,I got a fair bit done finished around 17.15 going back this afternoon still a lot of tidying up to do,will probably have more time now that the clocks have changed great an extra hour of light.Was rummaging through the shed and found a veg book which I thought was lost for ever.Below is a seasonal chart for the british isles in the northern hemisphere,I hope it will be of help to old and new gardeners alike.

Mid winter January
Late winter February

Mid spring April
Late sping May

Mid summer July
