John Badger at the bottom sent a note round to all everyone at the Hill a couple of weeks ago asking for donations of any spare produce to make up a hamper to raffle off this weekend at the clubhouse.
I'll put in a couple of the red kuri squash, a couple sweetcorn cobs, & a couple of jars of chutney. I toyed with the idea of donating the 'olive' squash, but figured that it would be rather bigger than the hamper, so discounted that thought.
On a separate note, JB has been nurturing a grapevine in his greenhouse & now that the bunches of grapes are ripening, he's asked me to take the bunches & make wine with them.
He dropped me a note today, "Its great to be able to look forward to some home made wine. Help yourself. They are only small but sweet," thus demonstrating a great deal of confidence in my wine making abilities...
