Lettuce help maintain your allotment
8 runners ran to help the YUMI in York.

8 GG Yorkies supported the YUMI organisation with their allotment. Sara equipped us with forks and loppers and put us to work. We were asked to remove all the Cumfrey that had grown in the allotment, and whilst some of the more green-fingered among us got straight to work, the rest of us were baffled and needed pointing out which plant the Cumfrey was. Turns out it has some deep roots, which presented a fun challenge for us.
We had fun trying to identify the various herbs around the allotment - is that Oregano or Marjoram? And many chats about our next running challenges were had. Michal is planning his training for the 12Ks of Christmas and Taymar is now convinced that she loves running and is signing up to a marathon soon...
At the end, we were given lots of lovely fresh produce to take home. Pumpkin and squash that people tried to figure out how they could carry home on their bikes. Pak Choi that many people were keen to get their hands on and Tay took some lettuce home for her house rabbits.
