I’m down sizing.
Hi gang, after much deliberation I have decided to downsize, no I’m not moving house but reluctantly giving up one of my plots. It wasn’t an easy decision but if a hobby becomes a chore then you don’t enjoy it as much. It’s not the digging that’s the problem it’s the continuous weeding of both plots that takes up the time.
I am going to sit down and put a plan together for the structure of the new plot. There are ten raised beds to move, a new compost area to build and my trusty tin shed ( which they have never broken into ) to move. There will be plenty to keep me busy over the Winter months. I will have to forgo the plum and apple tree but will continue to reap its harvest until the plot is relet.
The plot I shall be keeping gets full sun so I shall be installing yet another watering system from a 1500lt water storage unit. After the raised beds I shall dived the plot into quarters, this will give me my crop rotation.
If the work isn’t completed by April next year I don’t mind paying the rent until it’s done I suppose it will depend on wether someone would like the plot, I hope some one will take it over and look after it then all the hard work over the years won’t have been in vain.
