Ahoy there! Partly to save me typing up a whole bunch of stuff and partly because it's about time, in 2016, that Patchy Growth went for full digital media integration, I took a quick video of our plot today. We spent four or so hours up there today and managed to get the place whipped pretty much into shape.
You know that thing where you feel happy to show people round your house when you've done the hoovering and tidied all your crap away? We were feeling pretty happy with how neat and weed-free things were looking, so I'm feeling sufficiently house-proud to give you this brief tour:

After having a large part of our first season on the plot dealing with the vast amount of detritus that needed clearing, it's great to be pretty where we'd like to be with planting this year. We're actually running out of space to plant stuff. Once that happens we can spend some time tidying up the bits that are still looking a little bit detritus-ridden. All in good time.
