Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables

We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.

Read about growing your fruit and vegetables here on my growing your own food pages.

Waiting for the weather to improve so that I can make a start on ...

most years I plant seeds and nurture them in one of the 'cheap plastic mini greenhouses' the problem with them is that they do not offer full protection of a full size greenhouse and they can be damaged by the weather. So I am hoping the dry spell of two days can be joined by some warmer weather.

Shallots can be planted and it is getting near to the end of planting time for garlic... soon all vegetables growers will be busy..busy..busy.
