Fun on the allotment.

I'm a student, chef, gardner, photographer and general procrastinator. On the 5th November 2011 I inherited an old battered allotmentand started this blog so people can watch as I work and play to make it my dream larder.
I’ve just moved flat. That, and the terrible weather recently, has meant I don’t have much to blog about at the moment. 

However, I did goto an apple pressing day at a local allotment last weekend. It was fun. Hard work ( especially in the rain) but fun. 

They’re in the middle of trying to regenerate an ancient orchard. So we picked apples from a variety of different trees. Some small and sour, some fat, sweet and juicy. All were crushed together. And the juice was amazing. 

There was plenty to go around too. Even enough for me to fill a demijohn so I can attempt to make some cider.

Watch this space!
