Allotment Update


One of my work mates recently got a plot, it’s on a brand new site which has never been worked and the drainage is awful so he really has his work cut out. He confided he was on the verge of giving up and I told him I’d bring him something that would solve all his problems. I’m not sure what he was expecting, but I doubt it was the large roll of black fabric I presented him with!
I’d usually advise people to tackle their problems head on, but with allotments covering the problems until you have the time and energy to deal with them works well. Now he can concentrate on getting a small part of the plot ready for planting in the spring.
