This year I’m going to grow my own salads and vegetables.
My delightful but permanently broke teenage son agreed for a modest fee to clear part of the jungle garden to create a small vegetable plot. So the first thing I did was to plant beans, kohlrabi, onions, potatoes and cabbages.
I didn’t plant all those weeds, though… they did that themselves!
But this is a fairly shady part of the garden. The bit that gets the sun is the old farmyard… which is concreted over. So there I decided to try growing things in pots.
It’s a bit of a hotchpotch of flowers, herbs, lettuces, cabbages and peas… but it was a lot of fun to do. And we get to eat it afterwards!
