Have decided to take on a new plot and give up my old one. The problem has always been that my ‘old’ plot is on a steep area, the only way i could make it workable was to build raise beds and steps up to each level. That has been done and the plot is now in a good state – however – it is still a toil walking from the top to the bottom!. maybe its an age thing but the number of times i go to the shed, get something from there and walk to the other end of the plot – only to realise that there is something else in the shed i needed. After an hour of this it does get tiring . Also itis quite awkward to get to if you need any large items , eg bags of compost – only way is to park at the top of the hill and wheelbarrow the bags down . All doable , as i have for 9 years , but still not the easiest plot on the site.
Plot at the beginning
My plot now
I have been after a new plot – on the level – for a while and have viewed a couple , but each of them needed a lot of work and at least mine is under control so i declined them. This one i have taken has just come up, it is on a level, next to the main driveway for getting things to and from and – most importantly for me – is in superb condition. The previous tenant had looked after it well and there is very little work to do , just minor repairs to a bit of the fence and one of the raised beds – I jumped at the chance . Also has a great polytunnel (its like the tardis) and a shed (and more onions than i can possibly use !).
I am keeping my current plot on until i get everything moved , polytunnel, storage bin etc then will hand the keys back for someone else to , hopefully, enjoy.
