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

Shetland Black Potatoes

I went to dig up some potatoes today. Nearly all the Shetland Black potatoes had started to grow roots and shoots. I wonder if the spell of really warm weather in the past few weeks has tricked them into thinking it was Spring?

Join in with Matron's Christmas Veggie Blog

So now is your chance to show us what you've got! Send me a photo of something edible that you have grown on your plot that will be ready to eat on Christmas Day. Whether you have grown your full Christmas dinner, or whether you have some mushrooms in your airing cupboard or even some alfalfa sprouts in a jar on your windowsill - don't be shy! Share with us what you have grown and email me a picture, email address is on my profile page. I will be posting this special blog on Sunday 20th December so you have a couple of weeks to go take a picture.
