Brief milk update

A few weeks ago I posted that against my better judgement I had agreed to buy some local milk off a local dairy company. Things have worked out fine so far, we buy 2L a week of semi-skimmed from them and pay by flexible direct debit.

As an aside Edinburgh Council are buying additional land to turn into allotments. It may surprise some of our foreign readers but there is a statutory right to an allotment in the UK (in theory). In practise there are huge waiting lists everywhere for allotments. A lot were sold off in the 1970’s and 1980’s as people fell out of love with growing things and were built on (my theory is that allotments became associated with post war austerity). From the 1990’s as Britain’s food culture has taken off, demand has soared.

Could visitors take a moment to fill in the poll as to why you have visited our site- ta.
