Topic: Grow Your Own

Been watching a bit of River Cottage and started thinking I might have a go at growing a few vegetables in the garden.
Anyone out there had any experience of this, or have any advice?

Being a bit green (!) about all of this, I am especially interested in knowing what are the easiest things to grow - and what will bring the quickest results.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Wait for HeyHo - he has an allotment and has been doing it a few years. He'll sort you out.

Depends what your soil is like.

Also....  you might want to think about growing your own herbs - this can be done in pots or tubs.  Then use them in your cooking.  This has one big advantage.  People who grow their own vegetables are not seen as sexy and interesting, but if you grow your own herbs and cook with them then it's actually a good skirt loosener.

Much in line with my learning to cook in my early twenties. I worked out that if I was cooking for them they were generally going to be at my place so the deal would be half closed to begin with.  big_smile
