This is one of the days that every gardener works towards all year. I can barely remember way back in February when I planted my first seeds in a heated propagator in the greenhouse. All that careful attention for weeks and months. For this! Each year I learn what works well in my allotment and what does not. Every gardener has different soils, different climate and aspects. The joint star prize this year goes to the large purple beefsteak Noir du Crimee and to the Chocolate Cherry.
