Yes welcome to the wonderful world of allotmenteering!! Have fun! Hope your plot is not too weed infested? If it is - think about putting black membrane over some of it to make it more manageable and then you can concentrate on small areas at a time rather than getting overwhelmed from the start! It is hard work - but sooooo rewarding!
