New day, new faces

We started our new Saturday sessions in the most beautiful sunny weather.

Linda and Owain came along and did a lot of watering, to counteract the sun's drying effects on the soil. They also weeded out the larger of our onion beds before the early season weeds could take too firm a grip.

Sally, who recently enquired about joining us came along for an introductory look round before she had to go to a prior engagement. We hope to see Sally again, maybe on Wednesday.

Then another set of new folk, a family of four, arrived by bicycle. They arrived in two parent-and-child groups, having struggled to find the site. No wonder: who took down the allotment site notice? Anyway, it wasn't long before Chris, Amy, Abie and Chloe had been whisked around the site on a guided tour, then got stuck into some weeding: this time going to work on the bed of garlic and shallots. They left, all smiles, looking forward to next week.

A successful morning all round and the first of many regular Saturday sessions we hope. If all goes well, the Saturday sessions will allow more people to come along and take part in Dig In.
