Helping the Food Shortage

During this period of the corona virus when we are being encouraged to think about the food we buy, some people are once again thinking about growing their own vegetables’. This photograph will no doubt bring back memories of many years ago when people were previously encouraged to  this.

The rest of the field was ploughed up by Mr Gibson and planted with potatoes
