So the warm and fuzzy thoughts of living in community and growing all your own veg has led me to actually trying to make a communal veggie patch happen.
The key, so far, to a communal veggie patch is people. First I spoke about it enough to other people that they made sure I could make it happen and I got a River Cottage book for Christmas from the veggie gurus Hanna and Jon. Then got my lovely friend, and guest blogger, Jonny to help make it happen. It was never going to happen if it were down to me. So grateful for community making it possible.
We went scouring for pallets.
We smashed them up.
Stopped for a little coffee break. Coffee and Ikea cinnamon buns (no horse.)
Put them back together.
And after a whole day of scouring, smashing, nail removing, sawing and drilling this is what we created. Proud.
The best part about this is that so far it has been entirely free!!
Now all there is to do is make the rest of it happen and pray for the snow to stop!
