Bringing home the harvest…

Bringing home the harvest…

It is that time of year, when the leaves start to drop and the hearth in the living room starts to fill with a random range of fruit and veg…

Potatoes and pumpkins

Yes, it is harvest time at the allotment, and getting the harvest home is always an interesting exercise, especially as I haven’t owned a car since 1994. I have considered joining the City Car Club, but somehow I can quite bring myself to do so, as we can bring most stuff home by bike. For the last load I brought back, the panniers weighed in at 18.6Kg! One of the pumpkins was 7.4Kg by itself. It is not the one above (those are just wee ones), it is the one below…

The second biggest pumpkin

…when I took the photo I left the chair up against the table in order to give scale, it is 35cm across. However, this isn’t the largest pumpkin this year, no that one is at least twice the size and is still on the allotment awaiting collection. The ideal solution would be a cargo bike, a Dutch Bakfiets or a Danish BULLITT, I have to admit I really like the idea of a “fast cargo bike”. As always, the the ideal number of bikes is i=n+1, or as, have seen elsewhere i=n+1(-1=D) where (-1=D) keeps the number of bikes one below the number which would lead to divorce.

In the meantime, I have to figure out how to get the harvest home before Halloween, just in case someone tries to climb the fence…
