Growing veg from supermarket

Posted: 29/09/2017 at 10:43

I am just wondering if anyone has success with growing stuff on from the veg section.

For example chitting potatoes, planting garlic using seed from various things?

I am thinking of planting up some garlic that is in my cupboard.

Everything has been burned or taken to the tip. Next step is to lift the turf and get rid of the worst of the nettles.

Making good progress.

I enjoyed it earlier in the week when somebody living opposite decided to add to our pile of rubbish (cheeky beggars). They were hanging basket plants. These included begonias,fuschias and pelagoniums.

Thank you. I can save them for next year  obviously too lazy to put into their own bin!

I have no idea what this beautiful caterpillar will turn into. 

Progress is being made. Lots of ideas thought of,but hard work first. The site is looking better. A lot of stuff has been cleared. Many trips to the tip are being made but on the plus we have lots of firewood for my sister

I will experiment with urine and chillies. Perhaps orange peel and I will see what happens.

What do they like to eat? 

Is there any way to deter them?

For some reason I am unable to post photos. I was going to update you on the progress made today.

We have found what we believe is badger poo on the site. Is this a problem?
