Down on the Allotment

Matron grows vegetables and fruit in a Hampshire garden. I've been growing veggies since I was knee high to a grasshopper. Some traditional varieties and old favourites as well as new ideas. I share my garden with my allotment assistant Daisy the Labrador.

Gardeners Delight

At last! it's raining! Not just that pathetic damp air we have been having recently - that evaporates as soon as it hits the soil, I am talking about good hard, thumping, thirst-quenching, lip smacking, never-ending, RAIN. Haven't had rain like this since at least April or May. I look forward to going down on the allotment tomorrow and seeing what has grown.
