We had 30 adults (yes 30!) helping with the harvest and a good handful of children too, which I think officially makes harvesting a social event! Many of our regulars turned up, as well as an influx of new people who hadn’t harvested before. The word seems to be out that harvesting is not a chore, but is in fact an enjoyable few hours to get a bit of exercise, fresh air and meet some new people.
Thank you all for coming, it was such a pleasurable morning and of course extra thanks for those hardy Fluffies who stayed on and dug up my least favourite crop of Dock Leaves, the harvest was complete and George had rotovated 3 ex weedy beds all in 2 hours and that gave us longer to catch up at tea break with Sarah’s chocolate brownies, Susie’s Courgette and chocolate cake and roasted sunflower seeds!… See you all again soon?
