On Sunday 11 August, we had a day off gardening at Nightingale and ventured to Peterborough - to see our community gardening good friends at West Raven Garden. We also wanted to see how people do scarecrow making - in this case with wooden ‘cross’ supports, several bags of clothes from charity shops, a few bales of fresh straw, a big ball of twine, scissors and marker pens. Some people used white bin bags for heads - but also pale cloth (including T shirts) works well. Hats are very handy.
The scariest scarecrow in the competition - we like his straw between his teeth.
