Oh how the garden doth not grow. If you partake in any form of gardening and live in the UK you’ll know how I feel. I took these pictures about a week ago so they’re slightly old now but it’s not much improved from then due to the persistent, relentless, miserable rain. Normally rain doesn’t bother me because it means my vegetables are happy but June and July have been the worst I’ve ever gardened in. Still, it’s not all bad…
If you’re thinking about growing your own I have a few tips for you:
Follow the instructions on the back of the seed packet and don’t get all bogged down with hundreds of sources of information.
Start with broad beans and peas, they’re so good when fresh that they are worth the effort.
You don’t need lots of equipment. A spade, a trowel, some bamboo and some twine will bring you no end of possibilities.
