Plans and resolutions

2009 will most probably be quite an exciting year for us. DH has found a new job in a different city and we plan to move there a.s.a.p. Easier said than done, in the current house market situation. Despite the circumstances I’m quite hopeful that we’ll be able to sell the house this spring or summer. We have a really nice house on the corner of a row in a housing estate. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet. Perfect for children as there is very little traffic.

All these planned changes cause a bit of a conundrum for me regarding my allotment… It’s not really motivating to invest a lot of time and effort, knowing that at any moment we might move to a different city. On the other hand it’s simply inconceibable not to have an allotment this year, so I’ve decided to proceed with the allotment as I’d otherwise have. After all we have no idea how long it might take for us to actually move to our new destination, so I might have quite a bit of harvest to look forward to before we leave.


  • Try and keep the weeds on the allotment under control.
  • Buy less.
  • If I buy: get more ethically produced and organic products.
  • Organize my to do lists for work and personal life.
  • The new house (whatever it may be): consider renewable and ‘green’ alternatives for fixing up the new house to our liking.
  • New allotment or (hopefully) veg plot in garden of new house: create raised beds, try to arrange new plot in such a way that it requires least maintainence and produces maximum yield (with organic means, of course).
  • Grow more tomatoes (lots!)
  • Eat less sugar
  • Practise yoga at least 2 x a week
  • Be more organized in meal preparation (= eat more home-cooked meals, also for lunches)

Right… enough! We’ll see how much of that I’ll be able to achieve.
