Stinking Tree Rats

Well I love squirells, we have two that come into our garden every day. I have built them a nice little table that gets filled with nuts and other nice things just to keep them happy.

The first is so that I can try and remember what I have done and when, and the second is so that any of you nice people out there can give me some advice if you see me obviously going wrong. So what am I doing? I have taken on an allotment over at the local patch near to where I live. It is an old patch that wasn't worked at all last year other than by the weeds.
