One of the neighbouring allotment holders invited me onto his plot a few days ago to pick the blackcurrants. He had lots of surplus fruit so I filled a bucket with them. So watch out for forthcoming posts on using blackcurrants in making ice cream, cheese cake, fruit liqueur and jam.

Our neighbouring allotment holder passed on to us recently these eggs she found on her plot. One of our cream legbars had found a hole in the fence and was making useof it to build up a stash of eggs in a hidden corner. As we have no idea when the eggs were laid, we can't sell them. We will consume them ourselves. In the meantime, we've blocked up the hole.
