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

My Whistlestop Tour

Currently sailing round the UK on the Cunard liner Queen Victoria. Saturday had a wonderful day in Cobh where I met Peggy from Organic Growing Pains. (photos when I get back). Sunday in Dublin, yesterday in Liverpool where I was honoured to meet HRH the Duchess of Cornwall on board (lovely lady). As we sailed out of Liverpool after her maiden visit, the Captain of the ship decided to have a horn honking competition with the Mersey Ferry!!
Today I was in Belfast, drove all the way up the spectacular Antrim coastline to the Giants Causeway. Fantastic day. Tomorrow is Glasgow and a visit to a whisky distillery in Glengoyne and Loch Lomond. I do get around!

Carrie - we are just sailing out of Glasgow on the Clyde. Tomorrow we will be at sea sailing around the North coast of Scotland and on Friday we will be parked under the Forth bridge and take tenders ashore to South Queensferry where I take a trip into Edinburgh for the day. Are you anywhere near?
