The Challenge

8 Sep

The musings of two hapless urbanite allotment keepers. He’s a city boy at heart, she grew up in the countryside but neither have ever grown vegetables before. The first challenge: tame the wild 4.5 rods they currently rent for the princely sum of £15 a year before they get evicted for wasting an allotment plot. Said plot is currently a mass of undulating baked caked clods of earth topped by a huge tangle of weeds. The ethical question of course is: to ’round up’ or not ’round up’? Use evil chemicals or just plain old hard graft – neither are particularly appealing and right now the allotment has been lying untended for several months. The clock is ticking – maybe going public will inspire them to get going on this project (or just supply even more displacement tasks to stop them ever picking up a much needed fork).
