I started first 'preparations' for the event  :icon_cheers: Few 'little things' are now potted up and 'little' list made of what I bring along as 'green pressies' for everybody...or indeed if somebody want to 'swap' some of the 'little things' for something else 'little'..by all means! I won't be saying no for 'little green things'.. :tongue3: :icon_cheers:
I'm still enjoying Betula's 'little green things'...parsley from last year, and it aint little no more.. :icon_cheers: And the 'Mary Washington'  ..what's it (just experiencing blank moment) is growing well too  :icon_cheers:

Same here - I was wondering where it had got to, but just this week up it popped.  Lovely (but still very thin) asparagus shoots.  Thanks Squash  :wave:

And the kales - well they have exploded into a mass of spring growth.  This weather was made for them it seems.  Have just harvested yet another meal.   :wave:

Grateful thoughts are being sent often.

I am just bumping this up as the meet is only four weeks tomorrow (19th July).  I will also put a reference to it in the Shed.
I'm old enough to know better but young enough to do it anyway.

I like this idea!

This is a very cheeky request, but is there anyone driving from anywhere near Chesterfield that has a spare space in their car? I'd love to go but can't really afford public transport, unfortunately.

Thanks for the 'bump' Pauline  :happy7:

I'm really looking forward to seeing fellow A4A'ers - those who came
last year and first-timers this year.

If you haven't been before, I think we are quite easy to find.  There should
be some big signs up by the time of our meeting because our Summer Fayre
will be on 2nd August and hopefully the signs will have gone up.  There is a
map on the home page of our website www.growit.btck.co.uk.

Last year we had a shared lunch, and people brought some amazing
food.  But don't worry if you can't bring anything home-made, everything
will be appreciated (and scoffed!)

We have a kitchen and will provide tea/coffee/cold drinks.  There is lots
of under cover shelter in case of bad weather.  You can drive on to the site
and park near where we will be meeting.  There are disabled facilities.

I did make badges for everyone last year but I can't remember where I
saved them!  Would you all be able to make your own?  Even if it's a sticky
label type of badge it would still be helpful, with your 'real' name and A4A
name on.

I have a slight problem this year in that my husband will be away in Sicily
which means that because of my very elderly dogs I can't be at the allotments
until 12 noon.  Shall we say that we aim for about 12:15 to 12:30?  I can't
remember what time we had it last year.

I have the same mobile number as last year but if you don't have it, please
pm me.

Not long to go now...... :blob7:

Looking forward to meeting you too, Silverleaf. 

Last March I was diagnosed with diabetes type2 so have to follow a low carb diet.  However, I allow myself a treat every month and lemon drizzle cake is by far my favourite, but any sort of cake would go down well. 

I thought I might bring a Greek salad this year and a few egg mayonaise sandwiches.   I made far too many sandwiches last year and had to throw half of them away. 
I'm old enough to know better but young enough to do it anyway.

Oh I don't know what he is doing...first he wasn't coming...then I said, "ok I'll drive there and we are going to be able to have more 'girly' chat and time then..and I'm not in hurry to come back for the dog..." Then he started to 'umm and arrr'....and was thinking of all the nice foor....and he asked if Melbourne is coming this year (he is still drooling over that pie...), when I said "nope, he haven't mentioned"...it was 'umm and arrr' again...

So now I take it that he won't decide until the day we go...

That pie was spectacular! 
I didn't eat any of it because I am vegetarian but it looked absolutely
amazing and everyone who ate it really loved it.
