With a large allotment plot and a back garden to look after, there’s now a big additional factor to consider whenever we’re planning a trip away. No longer is it all about the best time of year to visit a destination, working out how best to avoid the crush of school holidays and other peak travel times, or even about saving money by travelling in shoulder or low seasons.
These days, all of those considerations may conflict with our need to be growing and planting out seedlings, watering and weeding the crops, and fighting desperately to keep the pests off long enough to raise everything through to harvest.
So we love this quote from The Royal Horticultural Society (to which we have a lifetime membership).
Do you have a garden kitchen or allotment that influences when you travel?
