We thought we would give growing your own veg ago! I mean how difficult can it be? Well only time will tell, so we have started with the basics and done some research. We have read this book.
Your Allotment by Clare Foster and Foreword by Gregg Wallace
It's an easy to follow book with some great pictures and ideas to get you started.
We will be growing three different types of tomatoes, two types of chilli pepper and a basil plant.
Since we don't own a greenhouse yet, the lounge has been turned into a temporary potting shed and because it is still a little chilly for our young plants to be released into the big bad world we have the smell of plant and soil while we sit, relax and plan the next money saving adventure.
If this little project works then who knows what we might grow next. If anyone has any tips or advice then please let me know. I will keep you up to date with our progress.
