The driest spring weather for a hundred years, means some of the things you are growing will suffer.
The strawberries seem to be having a good year, but the potatoes seem to be slower to develop than previous years.
It is easier to keep the vegetables in the raised beds in the garden watered than the allotment plot. With the lack of rain the need to use water wisely is even more important than ever. It is not difficult to save the water when washing salads etc, pour it into a watering can and use it in the garden on the flower borders or vegetable 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.
