a lot of allotment

I spent yesterday at a friend's new, overgrown allotment digging out a small mountain of couch grass. Despite not having planted anything yet we managed to come home with fresh rhubarb, spinach and even some potatoes. There are several blackberry, currant and gooseberry bushes on the plot too which should mean tasty jam later in the summer.

Looks and sounds like a great day. Its encouraging to know that there are still some allotments in the heart of London. I seem to recall a documentary about Hammersmith allotments some time ago - waiting lists of twenty years !
