Guess what?

I've got a new plot. 

Like the last one it needs a lot of work. It's also much bigger. I had to walk it as I don't have a long enough measure, 110ft by 30ft. Sure the last one was only 50ft. Any way I will probably only be able to dig over & use about half of it this year & will perhaps use raised beds on the next bit as it's covered in trees & there's no way I'll be able to get the roots out.

Moved a lot of carpet, down to the end. There are loads of bricks & stones too that look like they were dumped.

Second half of plot, this was covered in carpet & bricks

Top half of plot which is covered in brambles & grass

Full length picture, there are loads of trees along the halfway line, unfortunately they are not fruit trees

All rubbish that can be burned

There is carpet under all this, most has already started to disintegrate so will be very difficult to remove

Removed to end so I can get on with clearing the better half

Even more carpet & trees.

Not much clearer but you can see the trees from here.
It's going to be a lot of work but I'm going to go slower this time.
There is enough space for a shed & maybe even a greenhouse or polytunnel.

  1. Welcome back to the allotmenteering fold! We found disintegrated carpet on one of our plots. The wool content had rotted leaving non-organic detritus. It was a nightmare. What are the trees if not fruit? A derelict plot opposite ours has lots of elders that means no-one wants to take it on.
