Well, that was Summer for the year, it’s now officially Autumn and time to get cracking with the wine making! So, what happened this Summer? Well, we had a busy time at the LCAA, as well as raising enough money to have electricity connected to the site we’ve been working hard on our entry to the annual Green Flag Awards and. I’m very pleased to say, we did it! The first Allotment Site in Derby to achieve this and one of a select group in England.
I’ve also been taking on more responsibility, rather than just being “Committee Member without Portfolio” or the spare pair of hands on the Maintenance Team I’m now the, rather grandly titled, “Wildlife Co-Ordinator” and I’ve also taken on the role of official “Pond Warden” for the two ponds remaining on the Associations site,
Phew! Not much time left for gardening, and certainly not as much as I’d like for blogging! Anyway, just one garden related post for this entry…What do you think this is?
I’ll not keep you in suspense, it’s an African Horned Cucumber, grown from a packet of seeds I found in a seed swap bag, I’ll let you know what it tastes like!
