2 Goodgymers arrived on a sunny Saturday morning to help with maintaining Springboard's allotment. It was the first real frost of the season which meant the ground was far too hard to dig or weed anything, but Esther always has something to keep us busy no matter what the weather. On the plus side, the clear skies meant we had glorious sunshine all morning and topped up our vitamin D levels!
Today we were transferring some wood chippings via wheelbarrows back to the allotment and adding them to the home made compost, as well as adding to piles of chippings that will eventually be used to form a path.
There were a few other volunteers who also helped with cutting back brambles along the hedge at the back of the plot.
Just as we were starting to feel ready for a hot cuppa, a friendly furry face arrived and distracted us. We couldn't quite work out if our foxy visitor was a male or female, but either way they enjoyed the dog biscuits that Esther provided them with and later enjoyed half of Esther's lunch! We'd never seen such a tame fox and in such good condition as well.
A thoroughly enjoyable morning in the sunshine and it was great to have a chance to chat to and get to know the other volunteers Bridie, Alex and Colin.
