I wouldn't let the programme put you off, if you don't want to enter competitions you don't have to, which gets rid of the competitive nature of some of the plot holders. We've never had any problems with arson, theft or tipping on our site, I'd like to think most sites are safe friendly places too. It was unfortunate the young chap was evicted but the ground didn't look at all worked and sites are generally very very generous with how long they give new plot holder to get started. Whilst it being a nice idea and probably with the best intentions, it's not very sensible to have a plot which is left for long periods and then only used to grow pumpkins.
