Happy New Year

First Sunday of 2014 is … … Food Sharing Sunday

Come along to the GO2 Centre at Bluebell South Allotments on Sunday 5th at 1pm to meet other growers and share food and food ideas. Crops are somewhat limited at this season, but could include Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Kale, Lamb’s Lettuce, Leeks, Parsnips or Swiss Chard. We have a few seasonal recipes on our website – see the following link-pictures – but if you’d like to contribute any just send them to Recipes
