Allotment Envy on Plot 69

I don't know what it is about growing vegtables but it just gets me going... So much so that I feel the need to share my passion with anyone who happens to wander across my path.

I started growing a few tomatos in a pot about 5 years ago, since then I've got myself a bit carried away and now find myself with a 'medium' sized allotment plot in Bower Ashton, Bristol. This is my second full summer on the plot and being a youngish fella in gainful employment I find myself in a constant battle with nature to keep the weeds at bay, the pigeons off the brassicas and the snails and slugs away from everything! Not that I mind, you've got to be a bit philosophical about it and as my good lady reminds me, it's supposed to be a hobby...
