For the last few days i've been going to Accrington in Lancashire to interview allotment holders at Peel Park.
The weather was so hot and sunny - what a lovely time to spend days hanging around on beautiful plots with such interesting and generous people.
There are quite a few derelict plots on the site and there was a particular one that i really liked - a bit isolated and overgrown, it was enchanting with its dandelion seeds floating about on the breeze shimmering in the sunlight.
I have to say that the plot holders i spoke to kept wonderful plots with fruit and vegetables and flowers and herbs (not fields of dandelions).They were so nice to me and one lady gave me a drink of Dandelion & Burdock in a plastic orange beaker- a blast from the past.
