The Brabourne and Smeeth allotments are situated behind The Plough with wonderful views and easy to dig soil. Over 30 plots are now producing excellent crops of fruit and vegetables: soft fruit, root crops and squashes have done particularly well this year. All plots have a unique charcter. It is interesting to see the individual repsonses to the odd rabbit! Some folks let the little creatures share in naaature's bounty and alloow them to roam and munch; other plot holders try to confuse them awau from produce by planting richly-scented herbs and/or bright flowers – while the rest of us put up rabbit fences. Each to his or her own!
If you are interested in 'The Good Life' there are still 6 plots available, just waiting to be cultivated. Contact the Parish Clerk, Sue Wood on 01233 623902 or email here , or committee member david Smith on 01303 813746.
