In the beginning was the plot.......and the plot thickened!
Spring 05 - The plot is on the south side of Lancaster, about a mile or so from the city centre. A standard 90x30ft plot, in not too bad a state but with rather 'tired' soil resting on clay with a lovely cushy mattress of horsetail just about everywhere with roots that go on for ever and ever and ever amen. The good old boys just seem to rotavate it all in every year....guess it saves their backs but every little cut piece just produces more.
Regrettably, there's nowhere to store tools and there's no greenhouse so we put the feelers out for both of those early on.
If you're wondering what Captain Scarlet (aka Ben) is doing, he is checking to make sure that it's not a Mysteron Plot.
