    Veggie growers?

    Is there anyone here who grows their own? I'd love to know what others are up to.

    I used to have an allotment but we moved the veggie growing back up the back garden last year, going for a looser style mixed with flowers and the rest of my garden contents.
    This is the first full growing year and I'm about to greet sowing. Spuds chitting on the window sill and hubby is getting the heated propagator down from the loft today.

    Is there anyone else here that grows veg/flowers?

    I do grow some veg at home need to do more this year. I ended up being very late last year with my toms due to the weather and too many flowers in the greenhouse. Had to wait for the flowers to go into the new border as I wanted it to be a cottage garden style garden. Not sure how many flowers are growing back looks like a cat has been using it as a toliet and they have also dug soil over my new turf I layed last year. So that will need to be sorted and must order some new seed as all my veg seeds got wet.

    I'll be getting the keys to my very first allotment some time in the next week or so - though there will be a lot of weed-clearing to do before I can think about planting anything - it's been unused for the last 2 years, and the weeds are almost a meter high in some places! I'm really excited to get started

    Re: Veggie growers?

    Ahh, you'll love it!

    I remember getting mine, it hadn't had anyone grow on out for about 15 years! I was so excited. We took about a year I guess to clear it totally and be utilising the whole space. I loved it, it just got too hard to get there.

    I've got plenty of fruit growing in my garden now. Mostly berries that I'm so desperate to ripen. Plus some salad, greens and peas/beans. Oh and spuds dotting around too. I also tidied up the garden for my birthday party so it's looking really nice out there at the mo.

    I wish I could but I haven't got a garden. Try to grow herbs but they always die on me, apart from one mint plant which I left at my old house after we planted it in the back garden.

    I grow lots of fruit and veggies - for a living! I love it!
    A slow and steady loss is all I ask, well maybe not so slow!
