We also got on with harvesting lots of yummy stuff, and some weird things too. Every year, the tomatoes surprise us, and this year we seem to have a few alien spaceships arriving on site...

One of the harvests was potatoes that we grew in tyres. The long dry spells make it difficult to keep these moist enough, because the leaves tend to deflect the rain when they are grown in a tub. Desiree potatoes seem to work best for this, certainly they don't wilt like other varieties, and as Chris found, they produced a decent crop.

We're pleased to report that the clay oven behaved beautifully, and that the bread tasted great with the freshly-made plum jam.

It was also great to see Mac, who visited for some ideas for setting up a community allotment, and did a great job helping out. Hope to see you all again soon.
