Bank Holiday Monday…Growing your own

I haven’t got green fingers and Ok I’m super late…

It’s the end of May, and I’m only just getting started.

My artichokes are blooming; they were planted 3 years ago.  And every summer they just bud.  I literally do nothing for the rest of the year. My mint is growing crazy wild everywhere but I like that. I also have an apple tree and plum tree, which is just amazing. We all love just grabbing from the tree and eating.

Whenever I get the kids involved, which is super difficult for me cause they sprinkle the seeds everywhere instead of down the straight line, they tend to eat more veg, because they were involved in growing and taking care of it.

So this year, simple simple easy to grow for me:

Rainbow chard

More herbs



Cavalo Nero

Gonna do a bay leaf tree too, think my neighbour now knows it’s me that keeps sneaking into his garden with my scissors and snipping his tree.. guilty guilty

I love being able to grow and eat my own. You can do them in window pots /inside/ on a terrace.  Super easy.

Why bother you may say:

They taste amazing

So fresh




Let me know what you are growing and if you have any tips for me…. x
