During the Allotments and Growing Group Open Day, several new stuffed additions appeared on the fields below Knucklas Castle Mound – and not one of them a marrow!
All of them were carefully made to scare crows away from the crops but in the depth of the night and probably at full moon, one of the scarecrows, Ursula, was caught pinching a carrot to create her own nose.
When Ursula arrived, she was noseless but within a week of her moving to her new plot alongside the Youth Club Allotment, a young Carrot appeared on her face in a very nose-like position.
Please keep your eyes open and a careful watch on your produce. Any if anyone sees Ursula make a move, contact me at once!
