Grow your own food!
Turn your garden into a mini organic plantation like we are!
We live on a tight budget; we like to eat organic and I have an expensive sewing hobby.
With such discerning tastes and an unwillingness to compromise on quality, we’ve found creative ways to economise!
One way has been to make our garden as organic and edible as possible!
Last spring we dug up a corner of the lawn and made a small vegi-patch.
It’s a humble little space but we enjoyed this kind of bounty from it every day last summer!
Tomatoes, spring onions, aubergines, lettuce, rocket, lamb’s lettuce, peppers, green beans and chilli flourished. This year we’re trying carrots, cucumber and zucchini as well.
We’re also trying our luck with some less common plants such as goji berry and peppercorn bushes and moringa plants.
We’re germinating the seeds in this mini greenhouse inside the house and then transferring the seedlings to the garden.
We’re novice gardeners and we’ve still got lots to learn, but we’re willing to try stuff out and we’re having fun learning how we can eat from our land!
Have you grown food? Is your garden working for you? Do you have any tips for novice gardeners like us? Have you developed novel ways to save cash to pay for your sewing hobby? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to hear about your green fingers!
Happy Spring holidays everyone!
