2019 is this your year for growing your own food?

2019 is this your year for growing your own food? Brexit, veganism and mindfulness. Just three examples of reasons to grow your own food that I’ve read about so far this year. There’s actually a better reason, so if you need a reason to give it a go and make 2019 the year that you try growing your own food, then let it be that it is immensely enjoyable! There is nothing nicer than switching off from the world by going into your own garden or allotment at the end of a working day and immersing yourself in the simple...

Fruits of our labour

June has arrived already and after a very dry May we are already watering everything in our West Yorkshire garden and have watched some amazing growth spurts during the last 6 weeks or so. Our courgettes are all planted out, tomatoes and chillies potted on into final growing positions and beans already arching up their canes.

March - a new vegetable sowing season begins

As I prepare to use the final of our fresh home grown produce from last year, a Jack ‘O’ Lantern Pumpkin which has stored fantastically over winter, I am excited that the new sowing season has finally arrived and that it won’t be too long until some varieties will be ready to harvest. Last years, Black Tuscan Kale, Perpetual Spinach and Swiss Chard ‘Bight Lights’ have all gone past their best in the last couple of weeks after a long and productive harvesting period, with the Kale having bolted in the recent early spring warmth. Our Parsnips, Leeks and Sprouting...

February - Trial and Error

Type ‘trial and error’ into Google and you will find hundreds of quotes on failure and success. In my experience, gardening, growing veg, sowing seed, is not all gardeners’ world and perfect planning, but instead is success through multiple efforts of trial and error. My first attempts at sowing parsnip seed and trying to get a parsnip to germinate did not go well. Yet, filled with hope and optimism and not much else, there I was on a cold February morning, scattering my seed across a freshly dug soil bed, an image of my own home grown parsnip being served...
