Had a lovely afternoon on the Marsh Lane Allotments on Sunday. Following her kidney transplant, my sister and her partner found a love of gardening and took on an allotment at Marsh Lane in Hungerford. They were there from the start, when it was just an overgrown, stubbly field. Now it's all beautiful gardens with grassed pathways and flowers and vegetables everywhere. Belinda and her friend had put up signs with carrots on them all around Hungerford, and you followed them to get to the allotments. They had a barbecue, veg stand (I had already got some pork from the Farmers market in the High Street, and bought potatoes and a cabbage to go with them for our Sunday supper. It turned out the cabbage had come from Belinda, so I needn't have bought it, but it went to a good cause! With my beans and courgettes too, we had a delicious supper.) and Belinda had organised the tombola:
The sun shone and I chillaxed for the afternoon.
Sadly.......I didn't get to Newbury Show for breakfast, but you can't do everything!
