Plant swap and social event

On Saturday 12th June the Tattenhall Allotments Association held a plant swap and social event. All plot holders had been working hard and the whole site looked great. After a cold and wet spring, planting out was set back a couple of weeks but everything caught up quickly with the warmer weather. The plant swap was really successful and many plotties were able to fill in gaps or try growing something new. Many thanks to all for the generous sharing of both veggies and flowers. The donations given for plants will go some way towards paying for the urgent repairs to the mower. The children present had fun planting out pumpkin plants. Hopefully there will be a good crop for them to carve at our Halloween social. The bbq’s were fired up and the afternoon was spent feasting and chatting, sharing tips and relaxing in the sunshine…..all in our socially distanced groups.
