How to make a fruit and vegetable grower happy? Build her a new compost storage bin! It does n't get more exciting than that on allotments at this time of year. The last few autumn raspberries are being picked and by working together the plot is now looking in the best shape it ever has. I have high hopes for increasing the production of fruit and vegetables from the plot next spring and summer now as we have nearly finished clearing all the unkempt and wild problem areas.
Still my favourite thing at the allotment at the moment is throwing 'stuff' that others consider rubbish into the newly built compost bin - and anticipating digging out lots of compost in the future to nurture the soil of my plot.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
