That's a novel ideal. I'll keep an eye out for an old washing machine. I don't think Mrs M would be too happy if I sabotaged her washing machine. For the record, I have in my potting shed the following seeds sown. Broad beans, peas, red onion (a variety I haven't seen before so I thought I'd give them a go), leeks, sweet pea (I know you can't eat them but it encourages pollenating insects in, hopefully), I think that's it for the moment. I sowed them about 3 weeks ago but its beens so bloody cold there's still no sign of germination. Last year it only took 10 days for them to germinate. I know, I'm that sad I keep an allotment diary so I can keep a track of what varieties I've grown and how long it took to germinate and how good the crop was.
We have a fairly decent sized plot. Approx 13m x 6.5m. There are only 23 plots in out little enclosure but the parish council are starting to halve them to get the waiting lists down. Trouble is the newbies come in and go hammer and tongs at it and lose interest as they think it will always be like that. one thing I've learnt since taking on my plot 12years ago is that it will take as much time as you're prepared to give it.
Later this month, if it warms up enough, I'll sow some other veggies. Some in seed trays and some directly in the soil on the plot. Let's hope we see some warmth before too long.
