    As some of you know, I've been living on and off in a caravan on my sister in laws land and cultivating the veg plot for some years.

    She'm putting the house up for sale and I have to move the van and clear out everything from the pill box that has been my workshop for over 10 years.

    Got nowhere to put the van, greenhouse or anything else so its sell or scrap.

    Any offers on the kayak, greenhouse/cactus collection/bonsai will be considered.

    Taking my antique books down the dealers, but I got a lovely condition copy of Gilbert Whites Natural History of Selbourne I'd like to go to a good home.

    Got till the end of the season, after that, no garden and living in my car...

        Chuffing ada!

        There's gotta be a way around this. Got any mates building trade that need a night watchman - you could pitch the van technically legally in their yard that way maybe.
        Don't be sleeping in the car.

                Zigs is it a touring caravan? If so can you not look for a camp site?

                      Zigs, that's pretty rotten news. Hope something turns up for you. There must be somewhere you can set up your caravan. hopefully the word will spread and you will settle in again in a new plot :)

                        Thats a severe kick in the nads. I hope you get something sorted asap. Hopefully you will land on your feet in a perfect plot.

                        Good luck fella :blue thumb:
