The Offer of Plot 44 at the end of November 2011

After thinking I would never get my own allotment close to where I live and not really wanting to endure travelling a ten mile round trip to work on my mother's allotment ,the local council offered me plot 44.
 Without even viewing it (possibly my biggest mistake!) I accepted it and all the challenges it would involve to start from scratch.
 The plot had never been cultivated . The previous tenant only grew items in a yellow plastic "raised bed" . I was about to tackle weeds and brambles on a scale I had never come across before . There were areas of poor drainage , a lack of top soil and clay within a spade's depth. Not ideal but then most allotments are daunting and hard work to begin with.
