In my case, not very well! Every couple of years I decide to try to grow some vegetables at home. One year I even went as far as getting an allotment! That was a complete disaster and I think I visited the plot a total of 3 times in the entire year. Not one of my better ideas! In my defense the plot was horribly overgrown and covered in weeds, it was horrifically hard work to even clear a tiny patch, and no-one wanted to help me. So I gave that up. But it didn’t stop me wanting to grow my own, even though I have a terrible history with plants. I regularly buy potted herbs from the supermarket, only to forget to water them and they end up drying out on the kitchen window sill and landing in the bin. I bought an orchid because they are so beautiful, but that lasted only a few weeks. I am having some success with not killing cacti, though!
Anyway, this year I’ve decided to give it another go. I’m starting small and not too ambitious. Our garden is quite tiny, so I have decided containers are the way to go. We have one of those plastic greenhouse thingies, and I have sown some seeds! By the summer we will have a wonderful homegrown selection of cherry tomatoes, various lettuce, beetroot and runner beans! Keep an eye on my instagram account for regular updates on the growth of my seedlings and keep your green fingers crossed for me!
