    I'm less than diplomatic sometimes (that won't surprise some of you!) ~ I sometimes suspect I'm on the spectrum ...

    So when I'm trying to be diplomatic, I phrase a statement as a question, because it gives the power to the other person (opponent). Rather than saying "they cut down my nettles", I might say "are other plotters allowed to go on my plot and cut down my nettles?"

    (btw, nettles are a crop if you make them into soup; a fertiliser if you make Nettle Tea; a butterfly habitat if they're in the sunshine. Just make sure you cut the flowering tops off so they don't send seeds everywhere)

    Well i have a cheeky sod who walks himself and his wheelbarrow of tools through the middle of my plot, at the moment i dont have nothing cultivated so im willing to turn a eye. When i approached him he told me i need to put a path in my plot for him, i said i will do no such thing ive made you a path around my plot which is what should be expected.

    For now im leaving it, but soon as crops go in if he continues ill be setting a few little traps to pop his wheelbarrow tyres.

    I made him a nice path around my plot and he still thinks he has the right to argue, makes me angry.

    What do your rules say about right of way insy? It would seem very strange to me if he had the right to demand ROW across your plot (around it can understand).

    I would assume there's nothing to stop you having a simple rope and stick 'fence' around your plot.

    Just for the purposes of marking out beds etc.

    Once i get myself motivated ill be putting some bordering and small fencing around my plot just enough for him having to lift his stuff over and be a nuisance.

    There are paths going round all plots, he's just lazy and thinks he has right away. Its not just my plot he does it he does it to my neighbour aswell as he comes through the gate and just goes diagonally through peoples plots to his own. Walking is not to bad but its his damn wheelbarrow that annoys me.

    I'm off to the plot in about half an hour - I'll take some photos of what I use to keep people off my plot...and post them here for you all.
