Allotment Update


My friend recently went to one of the Edinburgh allotment shows and was particularly scathing of the quality of the vegetables, flower arrangements and baking. This friend can’t tell the difference between a parsnip and a pansy, but she is a mean baker and I was disappointed by her comments.
There has been a lot of talk about whether the shows should still be held due to the cost, and I must admit that I’d like them to continue, although it’s probably just a romantic notion. To that end I’ll definitely be entering something next year, and unless my growing skills improve hugely it won’t be my veg!
