I hadn’t been to Gareth’s allotment before, it really is like no other! So many wild flowers with an abundance of buzzy wildlife busying themselves around it. Fabulous veg growing in an array of super colours, it truly is a feast for the senses.
Gareth showed us around his idyllic plot delving into green houses and rows of neat veg asking us to taste different morsels to see what we might be able to detect.
One of the most interesting corners had a beautiful understated pond with an abundance of frogs and newts dipping in and out from the lily pads. Gareth managed to net a newt for us to have a closer look, I have shared the photo on the left.
It is no wonder that Gareth blogs with such enthusiasm on the trials and tribulations he experiences in his out door space, it has been created with so much fondness, effort and love that would only be possible by a true green-fingered ‘grow your own’ expert.
Thank you to Gareth for a super afternoon.
