|Here comes the rain.... again!|
Our group today was from the Acorn Day Centre. We were delighted to have them along, as they had agreed to assess the site for ease of use for wheelchairs and other disability issues. In return, we promised them lunch - as long as they would harvest if for us!

Fortunately the rain held off long enough for everyone to have a chance to harvest potatoes, including the gorgeous Edzell Blue, which is an astonishing blue-purple when it is picked. The raised beds got the thumbs up, making it possible for all the chair users to harvest. We then boiled up the potatoes (thanks to Catherine for helping with that), whilst the group went on to harvest lettuce, carrots and radishes.
These all contributed to a delicious lunch of potatoes with cheese and salad, which was much enjoyed, with many folk having seconds. Over lunch we discussed food miles, and also the various crops we grow.

We hope to see our Acorn visitors back again soon for our celebration on 21st July.
