I have to admit I’m still buzzing from this weekend’s Open Day at our allotment. It was such a great day :) Blue skies, fluffy white clouds and the sun was shining down on us. Everyone was rallying round setting up in the morning, ready for show time at 1pm :D
Tables full of delicious produce to sell…
Homemade jams, chutneys, and olive oil…
The most amazing smelling (and tasty) cakes, I had to take pictures and run incase I ate them all :O
I helped my friends with their stall. They had made an amazing selection of quirky signs for your garden, as well as little bird seed feeders. I helped to sell our debut allotment calendar that I was asked to organise. We had such a laugh.
Mr.B was busy selling stock from the shed with his friend Steve… compost, fertilisers, slug pellets etc.
I got to see so many of my friends and family. It was so great to show everyone around our site and the hard work we’ve done on our plot. Chatting about our veggies and what the plans are for next year.
We even had a celebrity… our very own Luis from the Great British Bake Off :) It was great to see people crowding round him, thumbscrews on, trying to get out of him who’s going to win… He wasn’t telling :) He even made his ‘Tropical Manchester Tart’ that we raffled off.
It truly was a happy, sunny, fun afternoon. To finish, we shared a bottle of wine to celebrate such a successful day.
Jassy came to see us when the crowds had gone… We missed her in the afternoon :)
Best get planning for next year’s open day :)
