I love growing my own organic fruit and vegetable.
I started growing my own fruit and vegetable only about 3 years ago, everyone in my family joins in even the kids really enjoys it.
Our kids tend to explore more in the garden finding worms, slugs and butterflies and lady birds.
We don’t have a big garden but we try to make the most of what we have.
Over the past 3 years, I have been learning a lot and am still learning more about growing vegetables and fruits.
Here Is What I am Growing In My Garden This Year
This is the second time I am growing green beans.
Last year I had a big harvest I even managed to freeze some of the beans and eat them throughout winter.
I grow them from seeds, they are easy to grow.
This year I had put them on the ground too early and they were damaged by frost.
I had to replant the seeds again.
I have now put them on the ground as you can see from the picture above.
I am also growing strawberries in containers and I plan to put them in a green house soon.
I started with just 6 plants of strawberry that I bought from a car boot sale and they cost only £0.50 for the lot and that was 2 years ago.
I have got more strawberry plants now as I was pegging the strawberry runners at the end of each summer season.
Cabbage, Tomatoes, Brussels Sprouts, Kale, Chomolia
In the middle bed am growing cabbage its the first time am growing it so I am so excited to see how it will turn out.
Besides the cabbage bed, I have tomatoes this is also my first time growing them.
Besides the tomato plant, I have also put brussels sprouts to be ready for Christmas.
In the first two beds, I have put kale and chomolia vegetable.
Spinach and Peas
I love cooking with spinach, therefore, every year I try to plant it in my garden.
I am also growing peas from seeds which I have put on those sticks as you can see in the picture above.
Potatoes, Blackberry and Hybrid Berry Bush Plant
I have recycled those 2 BBQ charcoal bags and these 2 chicken manure pellets and I have planted potatoes in them.
I have also planted blackberry and hybrid berry bush plants in those wooden lawn edging.
Sweetcorn and Butternut
I have planted sweet corn and butternut it’s the first year I am planting this part of the garden.
It was full of weeds and had to first clear the weed first.
I planted sweet corn and butternuts from seed in pots then transplanted them on to the ground.
As you can see the weed are still visible I will try and keep up with them as the sweet corn and butternuts grows.
I like to buy most of my vegetable seeds from Amazon because they have a lot of varieties you can choose from.
I buy most of my compost from Wilko especially the Wilko Poultry Manure 7kg and Gro-Sure Farmyard Manure 50L these two I highly recommend them because they are rich in nutrients that the vegetables need.
I hope I have inspired you to grow your own fruits and vegetables.
In the next post on gardening, I will be sharing with you the benefits of growing your own fruits and vegetables so stay tuned.
