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. On Twitter as @MatronsVeggies

Leo the Labrador

 Leo is getting on in years now. Fourteen years young and still going strong.  His front end loves to chase wood pigeons and cats away from the allotment, but his back legs sometimes don't get the message in time!
 Arthritis slows him down a bit these days, but he follows me everywhere!  Down the end of the garden he plods down with me and finds something to do!
 Always looking for a free lunch, he is the perfect gardening companion.
Despite having nice, clean drinking water in the house... he still prefers to drink from the rainwater butt!

That's what they call "Companion gardening" isn't it? :)

The garden is even better when you have companions, even if they won't pull the right weeds.

Wyatt and Stanzie will not drink water in the house, only from the little frog pond by the front door....go figure.
