GW: Ah the joy of being down on ‘the plot’ instead of losing it. Checking nature’s true colours rather than that ptb “manufactured rainbow” (reality), chatting to other allotmenteers (community), checking the planting dates (earth’s natural rhythm), making hanging baskets with strawberry runners, and digging the potato patch. Afterwards Glass of red in the shed watching the sun go down. If you haven’t ever tried it, it’s never too late.
