We took the kids to the allotment with that total disillusionment we always have, which is that they will behave themselves and happily play as we garden. What actually happened was E stood all over my tiny beetroot plants, almost knocked B out with a hoe, messed about with bamboo canes despite being repeatedly told to put them down and generally made it impossible to do anything. At one point, a farm cat walked past with a baby Rabbit in its mouth. We picked some Broad Beans and Elderflowers and later, E really enjoyed helping me to pod the beans. Despite this, neither child would eat the Broad Bean fritters I made for dinner.
Total wild time – about 1 hour 30 mins
