We met some lovely allotment holders who kindly talked to the children about all the bumper crops this summer.
We loved the prize wining wasp scarecrow.
We watched spring onions seeds being sown and learnt the asparagus crop in the raised bed wouldn't be ready to harvest for two years.
Puff the Magic Dragon was standing guard too.
The children hoped this scarecrow would help bring the rain. Needing a drink themselves they thought the plants would also be needing one. Whilst we headed for a shady spot for our refreshments, the plants waited a little longer for their water.
