    That's exactly why we love our plot too! It's right next to the wall surrounding Hulne Park and this past week I have heard nothing but Blue & Great Tits, Greenfinch, Robin, Wooddpigeon, Dunnock, Wren all singing and a Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming....oh, and my neighbours pigeons cooing, chickens clucking away and the cockerel crowing

    Your new plot looks VERY promising....must admit I wasn't daunted by them at all Under all that junk is a very exciting plot Clear/recycle the junk, plant a few tatties and get a loada flowers everywhere and it'll look great!

    I knew you'd clear it in no time, Snadge - slash and burn - what man doesn't enjoy slash and burn? Brings boundless energy and great joy.

    Barbecues are a well watered down version of it

    All you need now is a bag of 'shmallows ....

    Endless wonder.

    I love areas like that just for a forage,that scrap looks like ally,can you take it in yourself for the money,you have certainly made a good impression on the plot,as for the shed with a side entrance and picture window,that would be good turned into a little home from home,chair,2 burner & grill,table,you get the drift,i done something like that with 1 of our sheds,looks like a tatty conservarory,good relaxing place/hidy hole,hope you not ache to much tomorrow.
    Another nutter ,wife,mother, nan and nanan,love my growing places,seed collection and sharing,also one of these
