    Thanks, all, for the kind welcome!

    The plot officer at my allotment has allowed me to switch plots. I know this is not the done thing and it was not something I've done lightly, but my other half has dropped out and, with a toddler my allotment time will be somewhat limited and my plot is so overgrown that it won't be ready for planting crops for some time. Fortunately, there are lots of empty plots, and the association is clearing my plot for any future tenants, so I've not taken a plot in good nick from anyone else.

    Anyhow, this is the 'before' picture. I will be going tomorrow and spending most of the day there to make a start on clearing and salvaging my storage box. I will be receiving a lot of lovely horse manure and will then cover with membrane so that, come next spring, I'm ready to go.

    I'm on a waiting list for major knee surgery which is likely to come up in December, so it is absolutely imperative that I get it done as soon as possible before I am unable to bear weight for 6 weeks.
