Allotment Love

My partner and I look after a council allotment about five minutes from where we live – a small oasis in the heart of London.  I had not grown anything before we took it up about three years ago.  In fact I regularly killed house plants!  But the pleasure of being able to cook what we grow and the amazing resilience of many plants when given half an opportunity to grow has meant that we have had a reasonable degree of success with our half plot.
