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

Matron's Squashblog!

Following the amazing response to Matron's dogblog - I have been inspired in the past few weeks at the wonderful photos of all your pumpkins and squashes out there. Thus inspired, I will be posting a Squashblog to celebrate all your weird and wonderful produce. I will be posting my blog on 30th October. Please send your best photo on an attachment to and I will post them all with a link to your blog.

By the 30th I will probably have picked my itsy bitsy pumpkin and I'll look forward to sending you a picture. Maybe I'll make a jack-o-lantern with a tiny little candle.

Can I stretch a point and include very late fruiting and very oddly shaped courgette? (Perhaps in an interlopes category : ) )

Threadspider, please be my guest - odd shapes will be most welcome!
