  1. I just came across this and really love listening to the interview with Maggy. Being able to carry on working my allotment has been so important to me and gives a taste of the freedom which I took for granted before lockdown. The food production we do is important too and this aspect of allotmenteering has been studied and quantified by Newcastle and Sheffield Universities. My sister took part one year and discovered that she grew around £1000 worth of food every year. More if you load up on asparagus! I eat from my plot year round and have been enjoying kale and broccoli tender stems and leaves, winter cabbage, spinach and hardy salad leaves like winter purslane. I just baked my last stored Squash, a Green Hubbard. With the Covid crisis allotments across the city will be an important source of fresh healthy food and we should have more land available for this form of urban farming. Dig for Victory.
