full te brim

The great thing about having an allotment is the goodies, tea tonight consisted of

my first early spuds

my favourite poddy peas as the boys call them

cabbage freshly earthed up, steamed and served with a dollop of butter

the shallots are waiting for pickling tomorrow after a good soak in salted water

Ahhh I wish I had the time to run an allotment. When my daughter is older & can drive herself to training I'll put my name down for one. I grew potatoes last year & they tasted so nice. Sweet Corn was another winner & I used to get the water boiling before I picked the cobs to stop the starch. As a veggie I'm green with envy.....

You're right, nothing tastes better than home grown and what a wonderful load of very good looking veggies! I used to have one when the boys were younger, they had great fun playing down there whilst I tended to my patch. Happy days! I'm now craving crumble by the way.....

That all looks amazing! - Haven't had much luck with potatoes myself but having seen yours am determined to have another go next year! - That crumble looks the best!!

Lovely! You can't beat fresh-from-the-ground veggies. My dad always had allotments when we were kids. Now the closest I get to good fruits and veggies is the weekly farmers' market; still miles better than the supermarket though.
