Grow for Great Britain Aym?
I grew up with veg and fruit in the garden.....seemed the most natural thing in the world. Chickens too. Even, true folks, kept a PIG. Joey was his name and I remember some of the neighbours didn't like it. Sad, sad day when Joey was taken away. Loved Joey and always thought he was a pet not a meal ticket!!
We can never really be self sufficient. I grow apples,,pears, blueberries, peaches, currants, gooseberries etc., plus summer veg crops. I keep the ground fallow over winter but a return to growing a few sprouts, leaks etc. would be good.
I think we need to think about growing more food ...some think it is too much like hard work or is not really financially worth it but a few beans, tomatoes and a small fruit bush can make us a tad more healthy. Delicious too
ok aym! Your thread so what do you "grow for Great Britain"?
