Hi everyone, thanks for the comments and advice. it is exactly what i suspected it would be - i am more than prepared to put graft in, thats not an issue. the issue is the time in doing it. i have to be realistic and be honest with myself. im just not going to be able to do many weekdays, and even weekends i couldnt guarantee something else wouldnt come up.
there is another thread i have where there are city centre plots you can rent. they are expensive at £8 per month for a 2x1 metre raised bed, though if you take 3 raised beds it comes out at £5 per month per bed. still dear compared to an allotment but being about 20 mins walk away from where i will be i could devote more time to going there. before work, after work, lunchtime ... it would be much more convenient and obviously there would be less space so its more manageable.
personally i eat a lot more salad, herbs and fruit than i do veg, which is also a problem as fruit needs quite a lot of space!
oh what to do ...
