So, last year I got all green-fingered and decided to grow my own vegetables and salad. I attempted salad leaves, potatoes, carrots, spring onions and courgettes.
My courgettes never made it past being small seedlings, my potatoes didn't taste as good as I wanted plus for the work I didn't get many, the carrots and spring onions also failed.
However, the salad leaves were great and so easy. I grew them in a hanging basket and also a small pot, perfect for my tiny garden. So this year I'm doing the same so got myself a packet of seeds from Asda
They contain four packets of seeds: Land Cress, Lettuce Salad Bowl Greena and Red, Rocket and Spinach Viking. For a £1 I'm going to be able to have fresh salad leaves throughout the summer and considering just a bad of salad can cost more than a £1 then this is bargain an so incredibly easy to do!
Are any of you growing your own food?
