Today it was decidedly chill and the fire pit was welcome. The Barbecue had lots of warming food home grown potatoes baked, sausages in rolls, lots of home grown tomatoes and wonderful baked squash. Jake was particularly proud still of his own vegetable bed. It was Gillies Birthday and she was presented with a stunning squash 'cake' filled with tomatoes together with bunches of sunflowers. The birds were not forgotten and they had a huge trugful of sunflower seed heads that will be hung up and, when dried out, put on the willow arch on their allotment to go with their bug house! A huge thanks to Gillie and Vic Coulson, to Gabby Rolfe and Val Rutterford for rain or shine encouraging a real love of growing food to eat in a lively and enthusiastic group of Halesworth youngsters and also teaching them important life skills.
