|Before They Grew|
My potato plant has grown massively but is struggling to not end up wilting under the midday sun. Keeping it well watered is helping, I just hope it has got the energy to form potatoes. I so want the children to taste freshly picked spuds that they have grown themselves!
The Ice campaign promotes sustainable living and growing your own is one way of doing this. In the long term I can see it also being a way to save money when weighed up against the cost of buying organic produce. Even someone with a small garden, or even a well lit balcony can create a potted garden using pots, troughs and grow bags. I know with my small garden project I will never be able to be self sufficient, but just to get a few lovely baskets of fresh, chemical free garden produce is a wonderful prospect!
