The proof of the watermelon is in the eating
Growing fruit and veg and having others enjoy it is wonderful but, of course, there is no better taste than to bite into something that you have helped grow (and have the juice run down your chin).
The three above didn't even stop to offer me some as they tucked into one of the first watermelons to be harvested in the polytunnel. Wow, it was good... not sure how many of these will end up on the stall – they may disappear before they get that far.
Talking of enjoying the taste... we were very pleased to host a gathering from Lowestoft Community Church who thoroughly enjoyed a hog roast (no, not one of ours) and a few tours around the farm. It was quite something to see so many people tucking in on a beautiful, sunny, September afternoon. We are blessed to have such a great facility and to be able to share it with so many friends.
