Saturday Night - Marrow Wars

I put what Mel did next down to the beer. We had called in the Barrels for a few drinks where we ran into Mark and Tim, a couple of old friends who have their own allotment on a different site. After only a few minutes vegetable talk, Mel threw down the gauntlet and we are now locked in battle to produce:

1. The biggest marrow
2. The longest runner bean
3. The tightest cabbage

My 'Allotment Gardeners Handbook' will become our bible over the next few months. I am ordering some giant marrow seeds and arranging for Clare at work to give the plants reiki.
