I’ve always had a bit of stuff growing wherever I’ve lived even if it’s been in a pot in the yard or in the garden. The allotment was a step up and even if I’ve had a poor year here there’s always something to eat. I love that you can just come here and pick up something to take home and eat.
The magic of planting seeds and them growing into something that you can eat has never really worn off for me, I just find it amazing.
Coming here is relaxing and calming it’s a good place for me to process my thoughts.

I love doing this with Molly, I’ve been bringing her here since she was a baby. She really understands about growing stuff and is quite knowledgable about where her food comes from.


Eleanor, Molly and Scamp

    My name is Ola, and I help to write the blog at Thompson and Morgan, the seed company. We’re doing a special feature about urban gardening feeds on Instagram and came across yours. I particularly enjoyed your photo of Nancy helping to pod the beans.

    If it’s OK with you, I’d like to include your feed in our piece.

    We’d like to mention this post:


    The Thompson & Morgan blog attracts a large readership and you’ll be featured alongside some top bloggers, all of whom write with style and authority.

    We’re hoping to publish the post soon; would it be alright if we use a picture to accompany the write-up of your Instagram feed? It goes without saying that we’ll credit and link, both the photo and our review of your feed, to your page, and I’ll be sure to let you know when we make this piece live.

    We’re thinking of featuring this photo:


    Should you have any queries, please do let me know – I’ll be happy to help.

    Many thanks,

    Thompson & Morgan Blog
