They're starting to split plots on our site, which is not good considering half of the plots are the wrong size to begin with due to boundaries creeping out into untended plots back in the dark days.

    To be fair, I think there are reasons to supply smaller plots, some folks just don't want or are unable to tend full sized ones. However, there is no reason on this earth to charge more for a small plot than a pro rata proportion of the rent of a full sized plot.

    Take what you can get matey but as Sarz says, in the past it was reckoned that a 300 squ yard plot(250 squ mtrs) was needed to allow a family of 4 to be self sufficient in vegetables.
