That sounds like the warden is really helpful  - make sure you check out the sunniest bit for the seating area so nice to sit there all year round, barbecue that sounds good I can come for that bit right  nice lot of burgers  

Is a warden a person that regally checks the site?

Stagbeetle great plot looks like a nice sized one, nice to have a shed with a shelter, Later on good if you can make a seating area -  glad you have got a plot with out very high weeds now time to plan plan plan and clear and dig bit by bit remember

A good thing is to take a picture in the same place ever so often so you can see what has been done

It is the year of the sunflower have a competition with him see who can grow the biggest or get the first flower out

Q for all when you go to see a plot that has been offered  How long did you spend looking around the plot offered?
