Whilst the UN have been dithering on the important topics such as Climate Change and Gordon Brown is complaining about Great British Food wastage I have been busy working on, and taking produce from, our allotment. We have also very kindly been offered and shared produce with other growers and have not had to visit the green grocers for a day or two, other than for fruit.

It has so far been a very successful year in our first attempt as allotment growers; we are still hopeful that next year we will have an allotment of our own.

The ‘Great’ British weather, although good for growing vegetables, needs to change for a while so we can have a few sunny spells enabling us to get out and about on our push-bikes.

don't know what your weather is like, but you might be able to grow stawberries, fig trees are hardy, berry's, maybe throw up some peach/apple trees?...they will take a few years to bear fruit, but the sooner you start, the faster they will bear fruit..good luck...and good for you..

We are having a typical 'summer' in the UK, which comprises of rain, rain and more rain.
We are lucky if we get a day out without getting wet at the moment.
I will look into fruit trees when we get our own allotment next year all being well.
