Cases of manure contamination are still cropping up see here so it's still important to take care when acquiring supplies. This is especially important in areas where Forefront weedkiller is available.

Ideas for coping with the expected glut
Sometime in the 1980’s Martyn suggested that we looked into taking on an allotment. We already had a vegetable patch in our garden but we wanted to grow more of everything - vegetables and flowers - and just didn’t have the space. At that time it was fairly easy to obtain an allotment quickly and we took on a plot at Green Lane. Since then our plot has grown - in more ways than one - and our garden undergone many changes. This blog is mainly devoted to our gardening activities and the wild life that share our gardening spaces but at times I allow non gardening posts to sneak in too.
