Vegetable man, where are you?

    Introducing RubyBarbara's upgrade.

 Going underground: Tomatoes

 Experimental Jet Set : This patch has a bit of everything, sweet corn above

    The Strawbs or Strawberry Alarm Clock - patch? Keeping the allotment indie.

    Hops (beer) The allotment bar

  The weekend visit to the allotment, a nice place to escape the political apocalyptic-funk that seems to have gripped the nation. Didn't plant too much as the good ol' boys pointed out that we can still get frosts. Also to check the weather with Stantsed airport when it comes to Waltham Forest allotments.

The Railway Hotel, Southend on sea

   Made our way to the Railway Hotel on Friday night and caught the Phrogs playing live. Good to see a  live band playing tight and bossing it in a pub. If you happen to be down this part of the estuary then may I suggest that you doff your hat and pay a visit to this fine establishment. It's not too far from Southend Central station and you'll recognise the place by the Wilko pub sign.
