: Growing your
: own veges
With a decent sized back yard and time to tend a vegetable garden, I've finally established one.
I've started small to gain confidence and see if I can actually grow something that's edible.
I've started with tomatoes, capsicum, chillies, silver beet, strawberries, lettuce and cucumbers.
I also have herbs in separate pots.
So far we have harvested tomatoes, lettuce and silverbeet and there is a capsicum just screaming to change colour and be picked.
I think I am slowly discovering the joys that many ancestors would have had when they had to grow their own food. It may sound cliched but it truly is satisfying to go and pick fresh vegetables for dinner.
And the flavour! No more underripe, flavourless, gutless tomatoes from the supermarket for us...unless of course we run out :\
My next step will be to expand the garden and try some trickier veges to grow.
