100 Sq-Meter Allotment
As you might have guessed, this 100 Sq-meter piece of land didn't get used much. Needless to say, 12 months just zoomed by.
Much like moving out of the (Swiss) apartment, things have to be in tip-top shape.
Before handing it over to the gardening committee, we tried to "mow" this mini jungle. We felt quite pleased with our manual-mowing.
And you've guessed it rightly enough, mowing isn't enough.
The soil needs to be turned. Professionally turned, ideally.
So, here we go again, dipping deep into our pockets.
It makes one ask 'Why?'...
Is this allotment going to be used by someone right after me? No.
Will there be some gardening activity within these cold, few months? No.
Is Nature just going to take over? Yes.
But, I guess there's no point arguing with the Terms & Conditions in the Contract.
