"There is no meal on God’s earth so good as a supper of bread and cheese and spring onions when you have been working on your plot,” said a speaker at a meeting of the Voluntary Allotments Committee, held at Watford on Friday.

The speaker added: “If you have never had a dish of early peas you have grown yourself, picked yourself and cooked immediately afterwards, you don’t know what peas are like.”
