Growing Your Own Vegetables..

3 comments

Has anyone one else tried this or do any of you regularly grow all your own veggies?

I've got a small allotment I'd love to put to good use, any tips for me?

I do! I spend half my life in my garden and growing my veggies is a big part of that. There really is nothing like home grown veg. The biggest tip I can give is to invest in a greenhouse. They offer protection and control you can't get when growing outdoors.

I've been growing my own veggies for years! Everyone did back in the 60s & 70s, but sadly seems less common now. It's not too difficult to get right Mitch, just be sure to get the right seeds for the season and maintain them well :)

Sorry, I'm late to this conversation. How are you getting on Mitch!? I'm a big lover of home grown veggies

    Hi all! I just wanted to share a new discovery for me. I know juices have become a popular trend, but I hadn't taken much interest until a friend gave me a juicer and now I'm hooked. Green fruit or veggie juice in the morning is the best! I drink 2 per day and I feel so much healthier and full of energy. I think the extra vitamins are what does it. Are any of you juicers aswell?? Would be great to share tips/recipes :)

    I was reading this article (below) recently, and it really made me think about the food I eat and genetically modified food in general. I knew it happened with vegetables, but now meat!? What do people think about this? Is it really such a bad thing? I don't understand all the ins and outs of the process, so perhaps somebody more intelligent than I can offer some insight? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/08/09/canadians-unknowingly-eating-gm-food/

    Hi everyone, Is anyone else following a gluten free diet, for any reason? I've been ill recently and my doctor has advised me to try cutting out gluten. Would be grateful for any advice on recipes/all things gluten free!
