Barbecue & Gardeners Weekend

Well, it certainly has been a busy summer.  Everbody has been working hard on their plots and enjoying the produce that has now come despite the not so very sunny summer.

On the social front, we’ve had a barbecue on the 8th August where Court Lane Allotmenteers had the chance to speak and get to know each other better over drinks and food as opposed to over a fork or spade.

Ken, one of our plotholders has kindly done a photo montage of the event and as you can see much food was consumed.

Apart from eating food we also have taken part in the Birmingham Gardeners Weekend 2009.  It was held at Kings Heath Park and we entered a stall of our veg to see whether any prizes could be won.  We managed to get third so next year the plans are for second or better.

Below is a slideshow of our experiences at Gardeners Weekend and here is the link to slideshow.
