Down the allotment

Photos mainly from the plot I share with my girlfriend in St Anns Allotments, Nottingham - the oldest and largest area of Victorian detached town gardens in the world which has recently been listed with a Grade 2* by English Heritage. The site covers 75 acres and sits in the heart of the one of the most deprived inner-city communities in the country. See www.staa-allotments.org.uk/ for further into.
My biggest crop of courgettes to date. The two biggest ones on the left both weighed over a kilo.
