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.

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!! Look at him!!!! He is scared of heights....probably why he wouldn't go on the Eye. Did he see any royalty at the palace? I was hoping he would have tea with the Queen. He is just meeting all kind of new friends! I hope you teach him all about organic gardening so he can teach me when he returns home!

Just wonder if they serve Bilbo a nice Big Mac near Big Ben in London... I will definitely give Bilbo a sweet Pudding in Putrajaya, if he is here. ~ bangchik
