On Sunday 7th July we opened our gates for our annual summer open day welcoming over a thousand visitors to share our beautiful site with us. We were delighted to have artists from Ealing Art Beat and singers from Capital Chorus to add an extra special bit of creativity to the atmosphere. We even spotted our local MP, Rupa Huq, joining in for a song or two. Visitors were able to treat themselves to some home grown plants, fresh produce and preserves. Children had fun decorating log discs, planting their own tomato plants and hunting for our most eccletic sheds.
We are busy getting the site ready for our annual summer open day on Sunday 7th July. On open day you are very welcome to potter around the allotment site as it begins to reach its most productive and verdant time of the year. Our popular plant stall has flowering plants, vegetable plants and herbs at very reasonable prices mostly grown by our plotholders. We are starting to harvest the first crops of the growing season; lettuce, rhubarb, broad beans and soft fruits are rolling in and we look forward to the courgettes very soon.
Come rain or shine every first Saturday of the month a group of volunteers helps us carry out essential maintenance jobs on the allotments. February's volunteer day was used to clear a neglected area of hedgerow at the Occupation Road end of the site. We cleared a section which had been taken over by a huge mile-a-minute vine. Digging out the roots and removing a massive bank of accummulated soil uncovered some treasure including old milks bottles from the Jobs Dairy on Leighton Road.
