Five rods is plenty

Being "older and wiser", we have therefore been very fortunate to find a local family to take on half the plot. They will work the 'front-half' of the plot (nearest in picture) and we will work the 'back-half'. We will do this entirely independently but I suspect (and hope) that it will be a bit of moral support for us all and witnessing progress on one half of the plot is bound to inspire effort on the other half (or it will become very depressing - time will tell). Both halves currently comprise: half a dozen red-current bushes, one bean trench with supports and nearly 5 rods of couch grass (had to look that up too, I think the RHS will prove to be essential!). It has probably been about 2 years since the plot has been worked.
