Canal Allotments?

Allotment_19Feb09.jpg Continuing the push to get 2,012 food-growing plots of London land in time for the Olympics, British Waterways is offering up unused stretches of canal-and-riverside. We have 100 miles of waterways in the capital so that's a lot of potential for potatoes and peas. We're not sure who's actually going to work the land or eat this grub (nor how they'll stop voles getting it first), but we like the idea of hoeing by the river as pleasure craft float by. Yes, we like thinking about this idyll, and refuse to be reminded of all the back-breaking work in freezing weather. (Image / lindseymclarke)
