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

Happy Birthday Ted!

Happy Birthday Ted! Eighty six years old today so I thought I would bring him out for a day-trip in the garden.
Inspecting the sweetcorn, not quite ready yet. Maybe another couple of weeks.
Lovely sunflower, ripening well in this hot sun.
Ted doesn't come out much these days.
Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday - he's very chipper. It looks like the sunflower is whispering in his ear!
