Bramley Corner recently went to a Potato Swap Day, which I was very jealous of, so hopefully this will make us even!
Going to catch up with The Looney Leadleys and hopefully meet some people from our allotments since we haven't been there long! I've put my blog address on the back of the seed packets so that hopefully there will be more of us on here chatting away and passing on tips, although it is great reading what people are doing in other areas as well! (Claire, you've created a monster!)

We caught up with Alison & Tony and the skeet from The Braiid allotments, and we all shared our findings, so we have a few things to experiment with and can compare notes later - see what grows better in the north and centre of the Island! Also caught up with Vic & Karen who are neighbours at our new allotment, got some potatoes from them and Vic giving us tips on what did well down there for them in previous years. No sign of Richard, but did find out which plot is his, and it's not the one with the cage.
What more could you want in life?
If you were there, I'd love to hear what you thought of it, what you got and what you swapped! If you weren't there, I'd love to hear what other allotment groups get up to! Thanks for reading.
