We have had a really good trading period over the past week. Our jam had been swapped for bags of potatoes, garlic, courgettes, cucumbers, tomatoes, a basil plant and a marrow. People arrived at our Allotment Cafe on Sunday ready to do business. I also swapped my own runner beans (of which we have an embarrassingly large surplus we are still using from previous years) for onions at Dad's allotment. So the currency is not always the jam jar. Sometimes produce is directly exchanged.
