I hope you all had a great Easter! It has been lovely here on the plots, the days are stretching like a bear coming out of hibernation, hungry for people; come back quick leeds needs you! Snow is still hanging around shivering in the shade but the sun has warmed the earth, the robin is happy for company and you can sense the vitality and energy budding in every corner. The Rhubarb is rearing red heads bull like strong and tender the fruit bushes are unfurling delicate fresh leaves ready to bloom like butterflies.
Last Thursday was another productive allotment session unearthing layers of allotment history. Leaf by leaf the story is uncovered each glimpse of the past is helping to write the new. Val is back on the scene and I am off for a while but I am happy that people are getting to grips with the ancient skill of making it up as we go along.
A big thank you to those that came along for the give it a go last night I hope you got a little bit of the vegan snacks and found the showing of Food Inc interesting. We were really happy to have so many people turn out and although we were slightly unprepared, we had amazing cake so prepared enough I think!
Cycling away into the last of the sunshine today I pondered the ethics of less participation for better weather, to work on Saturday or Sunday? Gliding down the last hill right up to my front door my heart was easy. Like soil, water or animal resources a good day should be respected, looked after and even revered. That’s how we treated this beautiful Saturday. Sorry to those that could have made Sunday! I hope you can make the next day that blesses the plots with such generous pride.
