Just interested! What do you grow? This year I’m trying square foot gardening for the first time.
I’m growing Aubergines, Sweetcorns, Cucumbers and White Strawberries this year. I built a little planter out of spare decking a few years ago and have always used it as a mini veg patch.
Tons of slugs this year though causing a headache!
Oh that sounds great! Never tried aubergines or sweet corn.
Luckily the slugs haven’t found my new beds yet. I really wanted to go all out this year and built two 4x7ft beds out of scaffold board. Had to get two tonnes of soil delivered
At the minute I’ve got: edamame, peas, cucumbers, spring onions, onions, kohlrabi, chard and beetroot on the go and waiting for mizuna, mibuna and shiso to germinate
My wife has a strawberry plant she bought from someone’s garden on our ‘mini-moon’ in Dorset 3 years ago… It’s taken over one side of the garden
I don’t eat carbs so I use aubergine as pasta in lasagna etc, it works really well. Sweetcorn buttered and bbq’d might be the best food on the planet.
I really wanted to get a greenhouse this year but I’ve got the lawn looking so nice it would seem a shame to chop some out!
BBQ sweetcorn is the greatest
A greenhouse sounds good. The struggle is real though, deciding to keep a nice bit of lawn or use it for something productive . I’d love one too but don’t have the space.
I moved into a house with a garden at the end of summer last year so I’m interested in seeing ideas here. I have just started my first herb garden (mint, archers gold thyme, rosemary, chives and sage) plus a Bay tree and lavender for the small front garden.
I hope you’ve got your mint in a pot or you’ll have it everywhere!
Yup, I got a big metal tub to put it in, it has been in there a month and has already filled the thing!
Now to create as much mint sauce as possible
Id love to grow my own veg and fruit but im away a lot and my wife hates gardening. And kills everything plant related
Also surprisingly good in salad and most importantly, mojitos!!
