Shall I ?

It really has been an odd time for me recently with many changes. For the first time I have seriously contemplated giving up the allotment as I had totally lost heart during 2012. When the idea entered my head it didn't feel as bad as I thought it would. The annual rent is due and I have to make a decision. Yesterday I visited the plot and thought I hard, I knew deep down that I couldn't give up just yet. So I will pay the rent and continue some how.

It means I have  to have a plan. Its going to be dig dig dig, no potatoes this year as I never get these in on time and it always seems to hold me up playing catch up. Also the sight of them over chitting on the window sill makes me so guilty every time I pass. So this year I will just concentrate on onions, peas, parsnips beans and squashes.  Revitalising the raspberry canes and strawberry beds. Might plant lots of flowers for cutting too.

If this doesn't work I will see if I can change to a half size plot next year.


We went on a family walk after my visit to the plot, muddy is not the word.  So I am a little concerned about how easy the digging is going to be.

Glad to hear that you're not giving up, and I think downsizing would be easier to bear than giving up completely if it did come to that. Good luck for this year.
