Well, our allotment is busying up & you will be harvesting a lot of your crops from now until the autumn and beyond if you’ve been working your plot & before you know it, you’ll be thinking about the winter clean up and planning for crops next year.
As part of the new season in 2018, Plot 16 (John) is donating a large bottle of Jack Daniels for a wee fun growing challenge. Every plot will be given a dozen giant sunflower seeds and I am hoping you join in to see who can grow the biggest sunflower. It will be judged by John, measuring both the height of the Sunflower and the span of the flower, these will be multiplied together and a score created. The plot with the highest score will win the bottle.
Our junior plot holders will be able to choose something other than a bottle of alcohol if they win.
Let’s embrace the challenge and bring a bit of colour to the allotment.
John will be in touch in the spring with your seeds. Good luck!
