One of the real advantages of allotmenteering (I’m pretty sure that isn’t a word but hey we’ll run with it!) as a collective is that everyone gets to play to their strengths.
Neil would like me to list his skills as growing runner beans and making plant food aka Stinko Juice. Dave is great at constructing things and is fast learning to tell the difference between weeds and plants we want to keep! And Manda loves to grow fruit and then turn it into something really yummy to eat!
Earlier this year she surprised me by turning up on my doorstep on a Sunday evening armed with a tin of custard and freshly made rhubarb crumble. Tonight though she brought round jam tarts that she and her daughter had made. The jam was made with raspberries and blackberries picked and foraged for from the allotment yesterday afternoon
