The edge of a garden, or this case an allotment site, can be a very productive place full of goodness for humans too.
Half of our allotment site has been established for many many years. The edge of the new extension has been planted mainly with Hawthorn and wild rose but it’s the old site that is the most abundant.
Last years we picked kilos of Elderberry and Blackberries. The other day we found two cherry trees, and there is more: honeysuckle, wild rose and hawthorn are some of the ones that I can identify and remember. Additionally there are the usual useful weeds, like stinging nettle or goose grass.
