Sadly we don't have space for any kind of allotment in our garden but luckily for Ava and Jonah auntie Catherine does.  On our recent trip up to Manchester to visit Baby Maeve both my kids were keen as you like to sprint out into the garden to help pick things.  Having helped plant some of the seeds earlier in the year they very much feel a part of the growing process!  Some baby carrots were brought out as well as enough for your pudding amount of strawberries ... and they were delicious (well, the ones not already partially devoured by the slugs!)

As well as being dab hands at allotmenting (is there such a word?!) Catherine loves her garden.  When she got married Stacey and I bought some beautiful Garden Glass panels for the happy couple - a really unusual and colourful addition to their back garden.
