There are so many good reasons to grow your own veg.
Join the sustainable gardening movement and grow your own, fresh organic veg. You will save air miles, plastic, and money, and have the enjoyment of growing your own veg and being out in the fresh air.
But I have got to be honest, growing your own veg is not as easy as the garden centres and on-line retailers suggest. Reading their blurb you could think that from one tomato plant, you will shortly open your own canning factory. They want your gardening £ and it is not a good marketing ploy to say " buy this plant, it may be demanding, need lots of feeding, get various diseases, blight, and sulk because of the lack of warmth, sun, rain and eventually produce a crop".
But that can be the case. Even after growing vegetables for years, they are more tricky and time-consuming than garden plants and a bit capricious . In 2021, nearly all of my late lettuces bolted, and the fail-safe crops of onions were not. Previous years have ranged from a glug of courgettes to a lightweight crop. This year beans were in abundance, and the Kale has flourished.
Every year is different and sometimes it works brilliantly and sometimes it does not, but do not be deterred.
Starting with the easier veg, you will have a good crop of something for sure.
