Allotment.

As there has been very little talk about anything over the last few days, I thought that a mention of the produce of the allotment might provide a response, to date, I have picked twenty-nine pounds of strawberries, (true), five pounds of Blackcurrants, also true, I have been harvesting new potatoes for many weeks, I never ever weigh them, but Mrs. Taddy has not needed to buy any this year, I still have to dig up the main crop Potatoes, and to be honest I am not looking forward to it at my age but it will have to be done, I also have to lift and dry a hundred and twenty onions, I am getting tired just thinking about it but never mind, three or four,(or more) pints of real ale after I have harvested them and I
think that I should be o/k.

Taddy…you need to get a stall on the Market.
It might pay your power bills.

It's good to know that Cashy is keeping, not losing, the plot, as somebody told me recently.

Re: Allotment.

Taddy I wish you lived near me, I would be happy to be a paying customer. The strawberries in the supermarkets here might be huge but they're also tasteless and dry. If there is any taste to them at all it is tarty. Never sweet. I think they are force-grown or whatever.

No. Too much Red-Tape & wasting time with Council Jobsworths.


Have you thought about donating it all to 1 or 2 Food Banks?
I believe they're very popular these days and there will never be a shortage people who can't afford food. They'll be glad of it.
You could maybe even post a Sign outside your Home & give it away yourself. Too much effort or Council bureaucracy?

There'll still be places who'll take it for free. Who doesn't like free stuff?

Many of these people who "cannot" afford food "can" afford to pay £10/£12 quid a packet for cigarette's and £3-00p plus for a pint and what about the growing band of young and not so young "smackheads"?

If I can put my head down and ar-- up in order to dig, sow and cultivate my own food at seventy five year's of age then why should I give it away to the people who think that the rest of the population owe them a living.
