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 Leo!

What a brilliant weekend in the garden!  Almost warm sunshine and blue sky really got things going for the first time this year.
 Time to inspect the titbox, clear out rubbish from inside and secure the lid.
These sweet potato cuttings have been in a vase on a widowsill indoors all Winter, time to pot them up to start their growth.
They are very tender, so they will be staying indoors for a few more weeks to put on some more growth before planting out.
 Meanwhile a certain senior citizen has been celebrating his 14th Birthday at home with a sausage cake! Happy Birthday Leo!
 Then a snooze on the sofa!
