The joy of growing fruit & vegetables in your own garden β€οΈ

It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts when eating a home grown tomato.” Lewis Grizzard (American writer)


I read this quote recently and completely agree. Growing your own fruits & vegetables has to be one of lifes most pleasurable things!

With Summer here and the weather heating up we are harvesting our own homegrown fruits, vegetables & herbs. Next Spring why don’t you all try to grow your own. You don’t need a garden, a balcony or even a window sill will work perfectly.


I have found the vegetables and herbs which are easiest to grow and maintain are mint, chives and tomatoes.

Mint grows very fast, all it needs is watering and some sunshine and they are off! Perfect to tear into salads, add a few leaves to boiling hot water for a refreshing fresh mint tea or add to tomato soup for an amazing taste.


Chives are perfect cut up into a fresh potato salad.

The joy of eating homegrown tomatoes is just amazing. I have found growing tomatoes to be much more successful when you plant tomato plants rather than seeds. Use tomato feed and with plenty of watering and sunshine you will have success.

Get the little ones involved and you will all have fun next Spring!
