This week marks National Allotment Week - encouraging people to think about cultivating a few spuds or onions on a council site. In our region the city of Peterborough has 25 allotments alone, with almost 1500 plots.
If you would like more information on allotments or want to find a site near you, visit the website of the National Allotment Society, which is based in Corby in Northamptonshire.
Events are being planned across the ITV Anglia region to mark National Allotments Week.
Organisers say allotments are part of the UK's cultural identity, providing people with spaces in which to grow their own food, breathe fresh air and socialise in a safe and family friendly environment.
