a helping hand

This is the biggest strawberry in the world‘ said Rosy before licking it, giggling and dropping it in the box.  She seemed surprised when I said she could eat it; well if licking is not 9/10ths of the law it should be!  And Rosy had certainly earned first dibs on the days takings for lending a helping hand on Aunty Nic’s allotment.

    Those are just lovely photos Nic. I hope Cooper will be as keen a helper once he is old enough.

    She is a beautiful little lady and is delighted to help for payment in kind! Kids are always amazed to see things growing that they can pick and eat immediately!

    Bilbo – Rosy’s been well trained from a very young age by her Aunty Emily who also has an allotment. So unlike most 4 year olds when you point at something saying ‘and do you know what this is?’ she nods and gives the correct answer. She’s ace 🙂

    Jac – I’m sure he will. I bet he does his own fair share of licking when you’re baking up one of your lovely creations!

    Tom – absolutely. She’s so ace at sharing though and made sure there were enough for her mum and little sister

    Peggy – they’re a wonderful reminder of how taking time and having fun in the garden is as important as all the toiling. I know you benefit from lots of lovely young helpers on your plot )

    Oh she’s just lovely!

    As is your allotment…where, oh where are the weeds? Oh that’s right, they are all in my plot. And then some.
