I got a kit for Christmas with little biodegradable pots, dehydrated compost and five different types of seeds for slight more “unusual” veg – purple carrots, yellow courgette, purple Brussels sprouts, tigerella tomatoes and colourful chard.
I’ve always wanted to have a go at growing my own veg, so when spring came around, I finally gave it a go.
So far it has been relatively straightforward, with nature doing all the work really. We’re a long way from getting to plants a size and quantity that make a meal though!
I’ll let you know how it goes but so far I’m especially impressed with the courgette (of course, that’s my least favourite veg of the bunch!).
