Do you fancy having a go at growing some veg this summer? Getting out-of-doors will help us combat the challenge of isolation during this time and learning the basics of growing our own food has to be a good thing. What better project than growing some of your own produce this year.
If you’re up for it, starting on Monday (23 March) for two weeks we’ll email you every morning with another step on the way to growing around six or seven different types of veg this summer. It’s free and we’ll have some fun along the way , so why not:
It might be good to order some of what you’ll need. You can get these from good old Amazon or a garden centre (compost is bizarrely hard to source on-line), but they don’t cost much.
- Small sharp spade
- Seed potatoes – ones labelled ‘first’ or ‘second’ earlies
- Small bag of onion sets
- Seed packets: broad bean; dwarf green beans; courgettes; squashes; tomatoes, salad leaves.
- Half a dozen strawberry plants
- Plus: Around three bags of peat-free compost and a couple of bags of manure if you can get them + some little pots – even old yoghurt pots will do.
We can do this. Let’s do it together. #DigYourOwnaForCorona.
