Hi Zoomer44, just reading your post and noticed I put a remark on that I was still on the waiting list. Well, finally got my plot in June and like you, its on a slope and completely over grown but full of weeds and horse tail. I have covered half with tarpaulin/cardboard etc to deal with later and have dug 2 large beds that I have filled with assorted veg. Its going to take a few years adding manure and digging to get the soil clear but that's half the fun. No need to go to the gym!!
We have had peas, beans,tomato ,spuds and fruit. My neighbour has blackcurrant bushes they dont want so I have picked them and made jam and will transplant them to my plot. I have also bough some raspberrys to go in. I was lucky to get a shed and I have installed my walk in fabric green house, put up a few hanging baskets etc and planted some marigolds for a bit of colour. Its amazing how quickly you can transform your patch! Good luck with yours, hope you are enjoying it as much
