Shove off (his face) John

My allotment neighbour John – who is immortalised in song in the show – has another side to him, I discovered today. We were discussing the bark chippings that we get for free and the fact that I have been renewing my paths – trundling back and forth to the chipping mound in the far corner of the site. The conversation started – as always – with John saying that he hadn’t seen me at the allotment for six months. I hit back by saying I hadn’t seen HIM at the allotment for six months. Pleasantries over, John said I could expect a fine crop of mushrooms from the chippings. I wondered if I’d be able to eat them – the mushrooms, not the chippings. Then John suggested I might be able to dry them in order to experience “hallucinogenic effects”. It seems John may have an exciting past – hitherto unsuspected by his fellow allotmenteers.
