So last year we took on an allotment. I was unable to do much with it at the time as I was heavily pregnant but because they are so hard to come by I couldn’t turn down the offer when one became available.

I really feel that gardening is one of those skills that all children should have the opportunity to learn – knowing how to grow your own food is just as important as knowing how to cook it!

Here is our beautiful baby. Elliot.
My little ‘Elliot Bear’ – looking forward to all of the fun years ahead of us, beautiful boy.
