Earlier this week we said we would start publishing Audlem Online's ideas on how our many potholes could be turned to social, and possibly commercial, advantage.
So, we suggest, fill suitably large potholes with a good mix of soil and cow muck. Surround the new allotment with a picket fence – this will also help slow the trucks down – and plant with potatoes or other crops of your choice when the weather warms up, if it ever does.
The only downside, we believe, is that a good crop of King Edwards or Wilja potatoes could be turned prematurely to mash if a lorry drives through the fencing. But, then again, when was horticulture entirely risk free.
Another pothole business idea tomorrow. If you have a great idea, please send it in.
