Next objective

Postby Pa Snip » Wed Jan 10, 2018 7:11 pm

Had a look around the plot today as I have yet another urge for more raised beds to benefit my daughter when she takes over the plot. The cost is such that I best get it done as she would be unlikely to afford it.

What I was looking for today was the spot where I might dig up some energy.

My plan is to replace some low beds I made in 2012 on this part of the plot

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

The objective will be to replace those beds with taller ones to make it more comfortable for her to work.

Given the energy I will make two more beds to match existing ones in that area.
each bed will be 4.8mt x 1.2mt x 1mt
In other words the new beds will equate to two of this one

I won't mention the estimated cost because I can imagine the remarks of "at that price buy your veg in the shops"
All power to those who may think it but they will have completely failed to grasp the point.

You are lucky pa snip in as much as your daughter will carry on when you move aside neither of my daughter's are the slightest bit interested in our plot , if I told them I had buried the family gold on the plot they might have a dig after they had stopped laughing

I wont be stepping aside as such.

"at that price buy your veg in the shops"

If this was applied thinking then the only time some people would leave the house is to go shopping.

Since I have taken up growing my own it has got me out in the fresh air most days of the week.

I have met some great people who have freely given me their advice & plants.

I have had some very tasty fresh food that I would never had got from the shop.

Then there is this wonderful forum & its subscribers.

Colin
Thanks for your input and thoughts, could not agree more.

Damn sure my plot has helped keep me alive since 2015.

There's the sense of satisfaction and achievement when harvesting, there's a certain air of tranquillity that means problems seem to disappear for a while at least and there's a general sense of wellbeing despite any medical prognosis.

Well there is on my plot anyway and you cant put a price on any of that.

IF I get these two beds built it will result in a huge degree of satisfaction.

You are spot on PA Snip.
