ALLOTMENT ANGUISH - what do i do?
I have only been growing vegetables as a complete novice for a couple of years but very little space has always been an issue.
Just over a year ago i applied for an allotment with a local society in the full knowledge that i would possibly have a long wait. Imagine my complete surprise when two weeks ago, i received a call from the lettings officer offering me half a plot. We duly arranged to meet the next day on the plot and i was like a kid on Christmas day. The first thing i noticed was how lovely the whole site was and in such a lovely location, not to mention how friendly the letting officer was.
My anguish is this, in January this year my health took an unexpected turn for the worse and i have gone from being a very active 47 year old healthy man to one who on a good day could walk an hour with the dog but i would have to have an immediate sleep for two hours upon my return.
There is a chance that my health could improve but there is also a chance that it won’t. I don’t want to not accept the plot just in case i get better but there must be others in a similar position. I would love to find out.
There is nothing as frustrating as not being able to physically do things that only months ago you could.
