Wow what a great show and great to meet and share time with enthusiastic allotmenteers. National Allotment Society had a stall and asked for volunteers to help out on the stall for the day. There, you could have a go matching produce to plant, colouring and planting small pots of cress and receiving a free mag and packet of seeds. A great bunch of helpers and like minded visitors to the stall sharing stories of their allotments. One lady in Somerset told us of her dismay of watching her corn moving as the badgers strip the corn! It was great to see lots of people I know and even catch up with some children I have taught. Found a great little catering van, Joe’s Cafe, who gave us traders discount and we bought her up of all her gorgeous flapjack and brownies.
I came home with arm fulls of goodies (in fact G and LivingwithBelle – why did I not take a picture of us leaving laden with goodies from our display in the National Allotment Association?) It was great to meet A from Life at 27 and to be able to buy her cake for her birthday the day before. 🍰
On arriving home, and collecting arm fulls of beautiful fresh runners and french beans from G plot, I collapsed in the chair – but so inspired to go off the lottie to plant my leeks and butternut squash bought home from the show.
Busy day but must make it to the lottie – cant wait to see how the asparagus peas are doing.
To be cont…….
