I did a bit of this and a bit of that, but mainly, I dug up all my second Earlie's - Catriona - and look at this haul!
It is and will always will be, one of the best experiences ever - digging up potatoes.
Sunday now, and fingers crossed for the weather. I woke up to find myself quite excited at the prospect of the Open Day.
We all gathered around, and he gave a lovely speech - not too long and not too short-just right ...
And now for the best bit - SURPRISE - Derek Cousins, our very own bramble fairy's name was called out by the Mayor himself!!
We all knew about this, but of course Derek didn't have a clue! He was awarded a signed and framed Arsenal Football Team Shirt for ALL the help that he has given fellow allotmenteers over the years - The look of shock on his face!

This is Mavis- my plotty neighbour & our "Leader" looking radiant after her morning nerves
The Mayor & Mayoress were then presented with a box of Allotment grown veg - by the look on the Mayors face, the box was quite a weight!!
This is Nigel and me - do you like my "Lotty" T- Shirt?? It makes me look more "knowledgeable" than I actually am!!
And last but not least - The Committee
From left to right - Arthur, Nigel, John, Mavis, Carl, Paul and of course Dr. Doom in the front row.
My thanks, and I am sure the thanks of many others, goes to these wonderful people, who organised such a fantastic day - including the weather!!
