Sidetracked in Maberly

All along the highway to Elliston, garden plots dotted the side of the road. This was where locals grew their summer vegetables. Wouldn’t people stop and steal their crops? No, I was told. No one had experience this kind of theft according to locals.

I was on my way to see puffins but got side tracked by root cellars. This was where an earlier generation once stored their food; their outdoor refrigerator. This couldn’t have been fun in winter having to traipse outdoors to collect vegetables and whatever else they stored in them.
