Agents of Field are 1 Year Old!

It was one year ago tomorrow that Ade and I, with fingers blackened by the soil of a brand new allotment plot, tentatively logged onto WordPress for the first time to blog about our veg-growing adventures. We didn’t really know what we were doing, with the allotment or with the blog, but we thought it might be fun. Now, one year later, with nearly 100 published blog posts, over 300 followers around the world, and even some rather lovely awards, Agents of Field are going from strength to strength!

So, while we celebrate with some homemade, home-grown pumpkin pie (the recipe for which, rather appropriately, comes from our first ever subscriber SewSowTasty), we wanted to thank all our readers for joining us on our veg-growing odyssey.

Thanks for being there during our tomato triumphs and our brassica disasters; for helping Sophie keep her head above water during the veg deluge of summer ’14, and for holding Ade’s hand when he went back to school to expand his horticultural knowledge; for putting up with Sophie’s occasional soapbox rants and Ade’s gratuitous and entirely unjustifiable references to Arnold Schwarzenegger.

We hope you’ll keep reading, keep sharing, keep growing and keep eating.

Let’s keep the allotment love alive, people!

    1. Hi, good to see you back on here – we’ve missed you!

      This was the first time I’d made pumpkin pie and it was delicious, so many thanks for your wonderful recipe! We used a Jack O’Lantern variety although we also grew some Crown Prince pumpkins after your recommendation. As they’re the best storers, we haven’t gotten around to eating those ones yet, although I hear they’re really delicious.

      Thanks for your comment 🙂
