September’s Musings

As you will have probably seen, there is likely to be a shortage of vegetables in the shops this autumn/winter with corresponding price hikes.

That could well put our allotments in jeopardy.

As our allotments are remote from the nearest built up area we are vulnerable to thieves and every precaution should be made to ensure the security of the site and our hardworked-for produce.

It’s no good simply locking the gate when entering or leaving, if you leave the combination in the open position or moved up by only one or two digits.

It isn’t beyond the wit of even the dumbest thief to recognise a date and to manipulate the digits up or down by two or three years.

Please get into the habit of zeroing the lock, it takes only seconds of your day but could save pounds worth of lost vegetables and or equipment and vandalism.
