All you need is a JCB

We went upto the plot today to be greeted by a man from the council and a JCB.

We had planned a productive day after collecting some fantastic well rotten manure from a local farm to dig into the beds that we had marked out last weekend. Instead are plans were thwarted by a JCB digging up the large trees at the end of our plot.

I have to admit we were a little gutted. I know its going to save us a lot of time and hard work in the long run, but we have got so far clearing the plot ourselves that its a little disheartening to have a JCB come in and clear it in a day!

The council are going to chop down the hedges at the sides for us, pull up the large trees and rotervate the whole plot. Luckily we managed to save the strawberry plants that we had planted.

  1. What a bother! I guess in the long run you will be better off without those trees. My Sister had to cancel her lovely quiet time down on the allotment because there were a load of teenage boys doing their 'community service' on the allotments. Too noisy and swearing all over the place. sigh..
