8 mistakes I made with my allotment.

With that in mind it has given Richard the chance to reflect on his 7 years on his current allotment and think about what mistakes he has made. Now mistakes for Richard is not a negative thing, its a chance to lean so reflecting on this it has given Richard the chance to think about improvements for the future. The 8 mistakes are as follows

  • Didn't inspect he plot before taking it on
  • Rushed to get lots of plants planted before really preparing the ground
  • Keeping hold of unknown plants already on the plot
  • Making paths too small
  • Accumulating/ hoarding too much junk
  • Only spending time at the weekend on the plot
  • Not putting up labels
  • Not sitting down to enjoy the allotment
