THEY certainly know their onions at Lindley!
And their cabbages and carrots and potatoes and flowers...
So much so that the allotment holders who have plots in Plover Road have won an annual Kirklees Council contest for the fourth year in a row.
The site was judged the best small site of under 25 plots in Kirklees.
The prize for large plots went to a site at Marten Nest, Netherton.
But five of the six individual prizes were won by people who have plots at Plover Road.
Plot secretary Malcolm Peaker is not surprised.
He said: "We look after each other. There's no secret. It's just hard work, good communication and a love of gardening.
"We help each other out and we find people can grow most things.
"Some of us, like myself, can spend six or eight hours a day on the plot. Others may spend only a few hours a week.
"But we are pleased with our efforts," he added.
The allotment sites are judged on overall impression, variety and quality of produce and also on special features.
Kirklees staff judged them this month and were delighted with the efforts put in.
David Hosley, of Cultural and Leisure Services, said: "The continuing climatic changes and changing weather are a constant challenge. But the standard of this year's entries was again very good.
"The unsettled weather has benefited some crops more than others - but the effort and hard work could still be seen."
The prizes will be presented at the annual Open Flower and Vegetable Show at Greenhead Park on Sunday, August 14.
* Kirklees has 1,800 plots on 111 sites.
About 300 are available.
