Once I got into the head space of appreciating where we are, I found I was much happier on the plot. This is our first year, we have no clue what we are doing and nearly everything has to be researched and we also happen to have interests outside the allotment, jobs and a social life. In short comparing ourselves to a neighbouring retiree with decades of experience who puts in 40 hours a week on their plot is going to make anyone doubt themselves.
Motivation has continued to run high since we attended the Edible Garden show and met lots of bubbly YouTubers gardeners earlier in the month.
Plus, we finally got the greenhouse up, this was a job I had really hoped to finish by the end of January. Finally getting it done was a big milestone and at the very end of the month we were able to sow our first seeds in it.
What's been your biggest achievement on the plot this month?
