vegglut

Vegglut is a mediaeval english word meaning excessive quantity of vegetables.

When we started the community allotment, some in the  village warned that harvest time would be when the project would fail, predicting we would argue greedily about our share of the produce.

I am pleased to report that the opposite is true – it is proving hard to get the stuff picked. This morning I picked around 20 courgettes and a carrier bag of beans, and gave them to the village shop for them to sell, hopefully, to the few people in the area without a fridge full of them already. We also have loads of peas, radishes, lettuces, cabbages, broad beans, spuds, beetroot…and the maizin mangel wurzel.

There is still far more produce there than we can get through…fortunately tomorrow is the community allotment open day so we plan to position baskets of free veg strategically so we can offload various amusingly shaped vegetables on all and sundry.
