I love a good challenge, who doesn’t? So I recently started a small garden project to try and grow my own vegetables. I don’t know about you but I seem to waste so much salad due to it going limp before we have had chance to eat it all, so I am hoping I will just be able to pick what is necessary, reducing waste and saving me money in the long term. I also love the fact that what I grow will be healthier as no harmful chemicals will have been used.
Now considering my garden is only small I will be using large pots to maximise the space I have available and to see if I have green enough fingers to even produce any vegetables. I have used large pots and compost and chose seeds for the items I would like to grow and that are suitable for growing in pots. I picked green beans, tomatoes, onions, beetroot, peppers, shard, potatoes and salad leaves.
Two weeks ago I got started planting the seeds and lo and behold things have started happening, I have shoots on the salad leaves, beetroot, onions and beans which is a good sign. I also plan to sow some more crops every 2 to 3 weeks so that I have a continuous crop (hopefully) all through the summer/autumn.
I love the idea of producing my own vegetables but the proof will be if they grow and I am waiting in anticipation to see if I can reap any crops. Grotbags is keeping an eager eye on the pots, watering the shoots when necessary and I am really hoping it may encourage her to eat more fresh vegetables, which is always a good thing.
Hopefully by the time I next post about this campaign I may have had a nice crop, fingersThese products were sent to me courtesy of Debt Free Direct. However, all opinions in this post are 100% my own.
