Chatting on the Plot / Re: Next few years, maybe...
« Last post by Growster... on Today at 05:52 »
I've started to try and understand what the issue really is, and am afraid that there is so much obfuscation, legal-speak and gobbledegook in the hundreds of pages of documents, there will be many question marks as to what my village is really getting.

I think I'm reasonably intelligent - well, bright enough to understand a business with which I was associated for all my working life, but these documents are just totally confusing!

I like your comments All - thank you!

I think this bout of 'horticultural melancholia' is all part of the January scene, so perhaps I'll pretend to be in my 51st year and keep at it!

Seed catalogues anyone...? We bought the spuds yesterday!

Neighbourhood plans earmark where housing, what type and how much can go somewhere. Our parish was going to do one some years back, but haven't. We have planning for 9 bungalows, but no one wanted to buy the land and the local land owner showed plans of houses and bungalows,which the parish council says is too many for the neighbourhood plan!!
The whole of a parish has to be consulted,including people unable to attend.

It's amazing isn't it?  We keep hearing about the enormous amount of money the elderly are costing the NHS, but allotments, which are a cheap way of exercising, eating healthily and having good, stimulating company seem to be deemed of no importance. 
I'm sure that a lot of us also donate surplus veg to friends and neighbours, thereby helping them to eat a healthy diet and cut down on food miles.
The plots encourage wild life (some of which we could do without!), and I know I always feel much more lighthearted when I'm on mine in the early summer mornings, listening to the birds singing.
It's not just the older plotholders who benefit either, I'm sure a lot of the younger ones are happier and healthier for growing their own veg.  It's a hobby that must save the government millions overall, and can be provided by local councils at very little cost to themselves, but they seem to regard them as unimportant.

I used Wickes' green waste free MPC for seeds and potting on last year and found it to be very good after having had  a mixed bag of quality and results with Verve over the previous couple of years. I will be using the Wickes' again this year - it's almost always on a 4 for 3 offer.
