    I sympathise with your back troubles Sean, my husband has a lot of trouble with his, puts a crimp in your gardening. Hope the warm weather (when it arrives) eases it.

    hi sean I have to say whenever I need the motivation to get going on planning the allotment I watch your channel and Vivi of course. I too have a very bad back and sacroiliac dysfunction so I'm finding it tough to get the hard work done. You inspire me to keep going. Good luck in your new job I look forward to this year and your updates

And I saw and watched this of your allotment! in southern Ontario Canada it was 10 deg. c above in the morning and now around &15 deg. c at 6pm so no seed planting till say mid April for the peas and spinach! liked the video of Peter from the kitchen garden series !

    Glad you are feeling better and great news about the blogs continuing. Sorry to hear about your lack of response. I am shocked only Viv turned up but perhaps Christmas was a busy time for some. I would have certainly given you a hand but a bit far away in Cheshire. Viv is a gem.

    Love your raised beds! I'm new on this site…did you build those yourself? So nice. Also, love your greenhouse! Yes, when trials come, you will definitely know who your friends are and aren't. Even one true friend is a treasure! I'm in CA, USA…and we're headed for an atmospheric river. That was a new one for me, but it means we're in for tons of rain and flooding…rare. It has snowed up to 7ft in one and half days in N. CA!! I weeded for two hours today before the storms come tomorrow. Love your cats. I have one, but don't let him outside…raccoons and cars shorten their years. May 2017 be good to us all…be well!

    I know what you mean about you know who your friends are , last year I was pretty poorly and my neighbours ( who Ive adopted as family) come to see me in hospital a few times and planted potatoes and sowed my saved seeds so that I had runner and french beans, tomatoes etc as I was in no fit state to do them myself . Look after yourself , wishing you vivi and graham and happy, healthy new year.

    Happy New Year to you all too. Your Verbena might surprise you and re-spout in the spring. They often overwinter, however, they can get a bit woody and untidy looking, but since they self seed, that's ok. I usually give them 1-3 yrs and then rip 'em out and nurse along a seedling, or two. We are in the midst of a deep freeze here (Victoria BC), unusually, so everything has ground to a halt. Lots of tea and cakes.

    So glad your feeling a bit better these days and taking care of yourself Sean. Big hugs to you, Vivi, Graham Rusty and his kitty harem! May 2017 be your year for beauty, ease of gardening and great health! 😙😙😙😙😙

    Hi Sean i'm planning to do a variety of chilli plants this year, its my first time growing on an allotment im currently co sharing and i have 1 plant bed to use so i was wondering would putting the chilli plants out on the allotment be a good idea or not? thanks

    rotten buggers on your site. Still, am glad that Vivi could lend a hand. Just to make you jealous we are heading for 39 degrees Celsius this weekend and all my vege are looking frizzled from the heat

    Sean, How many tomato plants do you think i could fit in a 5ft row? i've got very little space so everything i'm growing will be next to each other in rows. Thanks, Joe 🙂

    Hi Shaun, great to see you set for the year. Would you be able to talk through the fruit garden – I'm planting some new trees too so any advice helps, and also if you're aiming to grow anything more exotic like apricots or figs?

    Aww Vivi is such a good friend! I love to see your updates. Where I live I am not able to do anything in the garden at this time, so it's fun and inspirational to see what you're doing 🙂

    Lucky to have a friend like Vivi Shaun Happy and Health y new year to both of you. I am getting a new greenhouse in Feb and am so excited, watching you and vivi to see what I can plant and when. Although being up north I tend to do things a bit later.

    Happy New Year from Medford Oregon! You need a garden intern to help out with things you aren't up to. Give Rusty a pet from me.

    Hi Sean – New for this year is Asparagus, I've ordered them, they are on the way 6th March +_ 20 days so I'm hoping +20 as I don't have the beds ready. Planning my Work and going to Work My Pan this the objective this year. Taking inspiration from your four year review of the month, I'm doing the same see http://cadalot-allotment.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/planning-reviewing-previous-years.html

    TY TY TY for the Golden Nuggets you uploaded during this krazy Xmas. As you told us the story about the amazingly awesome lack thereof, of help from the plot-holders, we both heard everyone say the same thing at the same time! (sigh) Same old, same old….everywhere! We really would have been there to help if we could have but finances and distances are somewhat restrictive!!! In our thoughts and prayers health-wise and so hope we can still see Vivi's productions in the future! The Pak Choi are amazingly cold resistant and that was a learning curve for us! Thanx again, Sean and get well and stay healthy. Cheers! (clinking of tea cups!!) Xx

    Glad to hear your back is on the mend. And thank you for the tour…it's nice to see things already coming to life on the plot. It comes as no surprise that Vivi rushed to your aid; she is an absolute angel and a true friend. I quite like the curtains she made for you. They add a nice bit of style to the shed. Shame on all your other allotment neighbours for not bothering to lend a helping hand.

    It's a shame to hear about the other plot holders not helping, I've not often found that attitude amongst fellow gardeners / growers. I think Vivi needs spoiling!

    Hi Sean. Happy New Year to you as well. Thank you for the allotment tour. As always very motivational and I am determined to get out into the garden today however cold it's going to be – I think thermals might be necessary!! What a shame none of the other allotment holders helped you in your time of need, but Vivi is obviously a true friend, and by the look of all those bags, really came to the rescue. Hope you have a sucess full 2017 and work goes well too. Best wishes – Gilly

    Thanks for the video Sean. I really appreciate the list of things to do for January too.

    I got myself a light shelf to start seedlings indoor this spring. Last year was my first time in decades starting seeds and first time in my current house and everything went really leggy, so I'm hoping my seedlings will be much better this year.

    Nice to see everything going well for you, other that the same old people helping when you need it most from others. I am going to keep my growing simple this year until our fruit garden is completed on plot 1. Take care my friend.

    😆 Happy Gardening, Terry.

    Sean, many wishes for a well back are coming your way. I've been blessed with a strong back without issues all during the years of my life. Now knees and shoulder joints? That's another story. So far, I haven't let the aches and pains slow me down but I have noticed that the work periods are shorter and the rest periods are longer when I'm in the garden. It sounds like 2017 will be a very different year for you than it was in 2016. Good luck with all your future endeavors.

    I won't be starting anything til April 1, my usual start date, and normally with snow still on the ground. I didn't get all my tulips planted. There is a large bag of them (Canada 150th anniversary bulbs) in the garage, where it freezes. I was thinking to pot them up around March1. Is that soon enough, do you think? Or should I go earlier? Should I plant all at once, or stagger them?

    as usual thoroughly enjoyed your latest videos. success with your new contract, i would think longer is better; we need to earn those pennies. take care of yourself.
