"If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress."

I've re-laid the middle path, the part that had been obliged to snake to the west because of the old shed being misaligned, built across the middle of the plot, where of course a path should run. Straight this time, of course. Well, more or less, it wavers a bit, as good allotment paths should.

For the first time, one can now walk on a path from the gate right down to the fence at the northern end. This has re-framed the plot: it's clearly five beds, plus space for shed and poly-tunnel, plus pond.

And as for the beds, I'm going to number them from here on in: the compass points used hitherto were a mouthful. So the old SW bed is now no. 1, Midwest, 2, and so-on clockwise round the plot, so that the "new" bed, by the gate in the SE corner, is no. 5.
