R and I went to the village hall today to participate in a new group which is starting up to collaborate on growing vegetables and fruit around the village. The idea is to share tips about what works locally and what doesn’t, and also potentially to share labour and the fruits of that labour.
Unfortunately we had to leave early as J and N were coming for lunch – but I left a gooseberry pie for the Lochgoilhead ‘Bake off’. Unfortunately I don’t think it was a winner as at least one of the others looked much nicer.
Anyway – there was homemade soup, bread, assorted preserves (including Donich plum jam and chutney from me) and it looks like a promising venue for the future. I certainly have some experiences to share from gardening here on the edge of the wilderness for the last year.
