Down on the Allotment

What's happening down on the allotment? An intimate account of a passionate veggie grower.

One of my favourite words is FECUNDITY. It sums up everything I love about growing food to eat. Just imagine walking through the fruit orchard at Wisley, and the trees are laden with stuff like this! This is why I grow my own.

I planted out my sweet potatoes today. They had a massive root system inside the pots already, very healthy and growing several new leaves every day. I snipped a cross in the black plastic and dug them into a hole. Scorching hot today, my thermometer was 90degrees in the shade. PHEW! Posted by Picasa
