Has it really been a year since my last visit to the Eastney & Milton allotments? Such a beautiful and grounding area of our island. So many wonderful textures and colours provided by sun bleached wood, rust and greenery. Not to mention the treat of a Lancaster bomber flying overhead. Not bad for a Sunday. Perhaps putting our name down on the waiting list could be an idea? Maybe create a mini vineyard. Chateaux Thompson (appellation d’origine contrôlée).
