It was the first allotment show that myself and Dave have attended and we weren’t dissapointed. It was great to see the vegetables, flowers and other items (including alien vegetables) which had been awarded prizes. (more…)
Congratulations to Dave of Farnborough Road for best in show at the Farnham Allotment Show. His beans were long, straight and identical in length. Deserving winner in a hotly contested category. It was I think his first show – so, Dave, it can only be downhill from here on in ! (more…)

If anyone ones wants any onions/garlic who hasn’t already asked me please let me know.

Here’s what I plan to make:
Potato and Pea Samosas, Onion Tarte, Mutter Paneer, and to finish – Rosy Rhubarb Syllabub (more…)
Hi everyone, sorry it’s been a while since I posted a scrummy recipe on the site, but as many of the Shepherd & Flock allotment holders will know I’ve had a lot on my plate!
It’s always great to see spuds being dug up and I always think of what to do with them – have them freshly boiled with some mint, roast them with some garlic and rosemary… or our favourite is Bombay potatoes, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you… (more…)
