Sunday saw the club appear in the Observer magazine. Their allotment update included our visit and it was great to see such a lovely picture of us all!
It really is a good partnership. The children get to see that growing vegetables is done by all kinds of people in all kinds of situations and it will hopefully produce a long term interest for them. For the adults, swapping growing tips and getting ideas is all part of it too. Bright Lights Chard will definitely be added to our shopping list this year.
Speaking of long term interests, my dad (who rang me after seeing the article) told me that it is 38 years since he started growing his own vegetables!
That certainly is something to aspire to!
