9. JUNE

Yesterday was a day that we missed for the last two years – the annual meeting of the Allotment society, the AGM and financial report and the most important prize presentation. I was delighted to finish in second place in the annual city-wide competition. I think the next step will be just one category – gardeners, not women and men. A lot of us can more than match men when it comes to digging and growing. Never mind that, my second place is great and that will be my last time of entering, I’ve done it –  came first in newcomers and a few years ago first in the women category, second yesterday, that’ll do just fine. It was a nice evening, the Lord Mayor was presenting the prizes. He and his wife both have an allotment so he can appreciate how much effort goes into keeping a well tended allotment.

There was an official photographer so eventually I’ll have a photo with the Lord Mayor as well. Apart from the cup I got a cheque for £50, that will go towards buying the seeds for next year.
