Half way on plot 57

A bit more progress on the allotment, with the strimming now reaching about half way down the plot.  I've now got around to measuring it, and it's 5m wide and 75-80m long (I didn't get into the very thistly bit right at the far end).  That makes the plot between 375 and 400 square metres, when the "average" plot size is 10 rods, or 250 square metres.  For those of us who prefer feet and inches, the plot's 4,356 square feet.

I think for once I'll stick to metres, as all those feet make it sound scarily big!  What am I talking about?  It IS scarily big!!

About half way down
Me in the distance, piling the cut stuff into heaps
Only half the jungle left to cut down

Somewhere in amongst this lot we've found the remnants of a few raised beds, although they're pretty manky and need repairing.  It's going to be a long while before I get anything growing on this lot, and I'm not realistically expecting to actually plant anything until next year.  But at least we're making progress.

Until next time.
