The group has been working hard at all the usual tasks of watering and weeding and our crops are doing well.
We’re digging a hole for a pond to encourage wildlife to the plot.
The rain made everything grow, especially the grass and weeds. We strimmed, dug, weeded and topped up beds with compost, then we were ready to plant. So far leeks, shallots, french beans, courgettes and an aubergine have gone in. The bean bed is surrounded with copper wire mesh to ward off slugs as metaldehyde pellets are banned at the allotment.
Okay, so you came early…and thought you could sit down chill out watch TV?
What do we have in the cupboard? Lets get to work…..
Yeast, sugar, self-raising flour, poppy seeds, salt, milk and water.
Kneaded and left to rise…..
Then we Rolled out and twisted it, and before the shoppers even got back…..
The smell of fresh bread was floating in the air…..
Let’s get cooking…..
We honey fried the sausages and onions (Yes, honey fried. trust us on this)…..
And then all the veg into the gravy and sausages in while the potatoes and sweet potatoes where being roughly smashed…..
And just when you thought it was all over…..
