    Any Allotment owners?

    Any Allotment owners?

    The idea of growing my own food sounds like a great idea and alot cheaper too.

    After being given stuff from friends at work that they have grown themselves its unreal how much better everything tastes.

    Just finished eating the best tasting rhubarb crumble ever

    Nope But I got a proper garden that's just been dug ready for planting.
    Yes home grown is much better.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    Unfortunately we don't have a big garden so no space to grow anything.

    My parents have one and dad grows everything himself. Tastes so much better. Good idea if you have the space and the time.

    I had a vegetable patch in my garden. I used to grow tomatoes, spuds, runny beans, chiles, carrots, sweetcorn, most things really. Never had much luck with cabbages or lettuces though. Odd really, because I dont actually eat veg myself, I used to give most of it away lol

    As already said, it is hard work, but very satisfying all the same. You can just do potatoes in a dustbin, half fill it with soil, chuck the seeded potatoes in, cover them up, then just keep topping the soil up till the flowers come through. Then when they are ready, just tip the dustbin over, and it saves all the digging as they all fall at your feet . Same with tomoatoes, just get growbags and make sure you keep them well watered. Ive got runner beans growing out of two flower troughs atm with green garden mesh tacked to my 6ft fence. They have done really well this year.

    I now have my 6 chickens where the veggie patch used to be, cant wait until I get my first fresh egg for breakfast
