April has brought the commencement of the fourth season, which, after a very wet period in early March, has seen the allotments dry out to the extreme on the surface. Twelve plots are in use by the co-operative, leaded by a growing number of participants, each receiving fresh vegetables and flowers for their efforts - payment in kind on a sharing basis. A portion of the produce is given to various inhabitants of Mickleton, just for the pleasure of giving.
