I visited the allotment this evening and wasn’t surprised with what I saw. It’s been a fair while since I’ve been there. During the past few weeks I’ve been in-and-out of hospital trying to get to the bottom of the pain in my stomach, just under my left ribs. All the tests have been done but I’m still awaiting the results. The problem is when I bend over, the pain gets worse so the prospect of weeding hasn’t been attractive.
It’s a large plot and somewhat overwhelming at the moment. I need to spend a full day and strim the grass and weeds down to the ground. Whether to cover the majority of it in black plastic or spray it to keep the weeds down. Whatever I decide, something has to be done.
I need to commit to visit on a weekly basis and at least start the task of getting it sorted by doing a little but doing it often.
