I have taken up this challenge to grow and use some home grown produce that I have lovingly nurtured with my own green fingers...well that's the plan!
Armed with a selection of seasonal organic seeds supplied by Ice, the plan is to sow them and grow my own salad leafs and vegetables.
Unfortunately I am not blessed with a big, sunny garden. In fact my outdoor space is rather small, shady and monopolised by my outdoor loving children and their play paraphernalia. However, that doesn't mean I can't grow my own produce. Using pots, tubs and troughs, I can plant up a variety of seeds successfully. This year I have already started on my mission to be greener and save cash by subsidising our diet with homegrown produce. I have potatoes growing in a tub, rhubarb in a pot and strawberries that have broken free from their planter and taken root in my lawn!
Gardening is an activity that I enjoy doing with the children as it helps them to learn about nature and teaches them about where their food comes from. As we are a family of vegetarians, I think that growing our own and trying to live more sustainably is something that complements our lifestyle perfectly and sets a great example to my kids - the next generation.
Now all I need to do is wait for my seedlings to grow and reap the rewards of growing my own! I am looking forward to some freshly picked baby leaf salad very soon!
