Whilst dreaming of tasty fruit and veg to come I am rather daunted by the state of the plot. I'm not sure how I'll get it from waist high weeds and nettles to a productive plot, raspberries, strawberries, peas and potatoes, a patch for herbs, flowers for cutting...I have lots of plans but need a fairy godmother to wave her wand and banish the weeds for me!
My thoughts so far are -
Cover it with carpet so the weeds don't get any worse and new ones are smothered.
Just try to get a small area cultivated at once- weed a small patch and get it planted so I feel I'm making progress.
Find a no dig method of vegetable cultivation so once it's clear I don't have to keep digging.
On the plus side it is right next to the tap so easy for watering,there are some black and red currant bushes and I thought it would be next season before I got to the top of the list so can make some sort of start this year, there are lots of friendly people on the site who will be great for advice..... speaking of which if anyone has any tips for a new allotment holder I'd love to hear them.
Guess what I'll be doing this weekend...........!
