Spring-like Saturday (just a tad windy)

Extreme picnicking Note wind felled tree behind Fiona

With three of the core members working on other projects, it was just the two of us for this weeks meet up. Fiona and I resisted the urge to skimp on the days work, with no one to report on us, honestly!
Once I had dealt with emails associated with the allotment insurance research ( the excitement was unbearable ) Health and Safety statement….blah blah… but Confucius say; Better to be safe than sorry! Meanwhile on top off being an excellent info gatherer for my form filling, Fiona deliberated the pros and cons of joining The Trust for ConservationVolunteers

TCV have a host of benefits of joining for community based projects, the free bag for life hit a soft spot for both of us:-)

“Extreme Picnicking” (my kind of sport!)

Rules for Extreme Picnicking
1. Windbreak/shelter blown down at least twice
2. Hold onto your food at all costs
3. Bonus points if your basket blows away
4.Never run out of tea (note to self, pack a bigger thermos)

On a serious note it was great to visit the plot and indulge in a spot of creative visualisation. There are signs of spring; burgeoning blossom in the trees along the back edge, rhubarb coming through on other plots, I am so excited to think what our plot will look like this time next year.
