Down on the Allotment

Just over four years ago I had the pleasure of meeting a fellow garden blogger face to face when I travelled to Seattle and met Paula from Petunia's Garden blog.
We enjoyed it so much that she came back to London for a return match last year!
3 years ago I took the opportunity to meet up with Yolanda from Bliss Garden when she took a trip from her home in the Netherlands to the Savill Garden in England.
2 years ago I was on holiday in Cork, Ireland when the lovely Peggy took me of a tour of her organic allotment potato patch (what a glorious day that was!)
So who's going to be next? Matron is looking forward to meeting up with another garden blogger this weekend. Boots polished and ready!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! My weekend is getting cut short due to work but somewhere in there I am going to attempt to build a heated plant incubator. I have the rudimentary supplies and the overwhelming desire to get the season started.

Have fun! I have met a few bloggers now including Yolanda briefly at the Malvern Show. They have all been lovely people :)
