bizarre situation- what would you do?

You have an interesting theory Dorset UK, its a mystery. I could find out what actually happened by going to the BBQ/bonfire this Saturday courtesy of mgt. Its a sort of get together to welcome the new allotmenteers.
The extra place FGirl will probably be a mini orchard. Yes I'm really pleased as punch.

Me too Dove-never planted asparagus before, got the crowns from T&M followed their instructions fingers crossed. Being a bit impatient I'll be tempted to pick before I should.

Morning- A result. Went to the plot yesterday and saw a great big notice to the previous owner from the steward basically saying that its now been let and no longer belongs to him, he needs to make contact as they've not been able to reach him for mths. Also he hasn't actually paid the full amount.
Although I think it's ugly displaying this infor for all to see-at least It's mine.
Unfortunately some people take on plots and don't maintain them for all sorts of reason but don't give them up. As long as payment is made that seems to be ok-just unfair to those on the WL.

Runnybeak. Creepy it certainly is and cutting my losses could be the way to go. I already have half plot that I love and adore so this additional small bit I guess I can let go.

Hi Kathy2 As Steward couldn't contact the previous owner, who had moved from the area a letter was left for him on the plot reminding about overdue rent eviction notice etc. He obviously did appear took the letter and promptly paid the rent albeit grossly overdue.
On my last visit I noticed something not quite right? I noticed my planting area covered by black sheet. It was a weird feeling that someone had messed around a bit-no one was around to speak too.
I emailed the committee expressing what had happened and they told me that someone had seen him and that he's now paid up. Bizarrely he hasn't contacted the committee and he is still not contactable.
As far as I'm concerned the chair has to sort this out- it is upsetting and unsettling. The compromise could be that we share for the time being as we have both paid.

Morning all
Great idea Dorsetuk for both of us to work together and put in a complaint. Having slept over it and the support from you guys- I'm trying to see the funny side!
Tootles- I will leave what I've planted and the neighbor can do the hard work and I will just enjoy the harvest-3yrs for asparagus!
You did make me smile about the cycling gear-my husband a non sporting guy a while ago bought cycling trousers so utterly embarrassing, I had to take them to the charity shop.
I'm planning on throwing a barrow of slugs on the stewards plot I'm sure that will make me feel better-seriously I'll address it from the view the effect it has had on both of us and the misery it has caused due mgt error (incompetence)
Thanks everyone enjoy the w/end
