The starter half plot is probably a good idea.
At my last plot/first plot my neighbour had sub-let about a third of his as he couldn't manage it all. I only saw them once, it was after their greenhouse had collapsed and I had gathered up all the bits that had blown onto my plot and piled it up. I was sad to see how overwhelming they found it and I wanted to help but it's a full time hobby I think, a lot of commitment.
I went up this morning, light rain at first but then brightened up which I was glad about as I'd taken my plan and a brew with view to doing some musing and measuring.
Narrowed down my raspberry want list, made some thoughtful decisions about what to put where and what space to leave until I had a better idea for it.
Cut down the autumn rasps, straightened and tightened the poultry net I'm using as a support and made a few changes on where to plant cordons.
Watched some nice little birds on the plot, goldfinch, chaffinch and Robin on the feeders and dunnocks and a wren bouncing around the wood and assorted crap pile.
