I've been a bad boy, I have neglected my allotment for some time. I will not bore you with my excuses.
As a result I have lost half my plot. Which is fair. And have about a month to get my remaining half of the plot in shape.
Nothing like a fixed deadline to get me focused.
So I enlisted some help. Shaks will work for me in exchange for me working for him. I. E. For every hour he helps me. I owe him an hour of help.
Now Shaks didn't want this arrangement, but I insisted.
The plan is simple. Take as much cardboard down, then cover the ground, then place a raised bed I've already knocked up. And fill with plug plants I've started at home.
I'll cover the finer points in another post. For now here is a before and after photo of 4 hours graft.
