This year I have achieved something that I never have before…I have succeeded in growing home grown veg. Having always lived in rented accommodation, it meant that we had to try to grow crops in pots or surreptitiously between other people’s roses – without much success. Earlier this year when we were still living in our tiny rented house I sowed some lettuces, and then some carrots in pots. Not even huge terracotta allotmenteer type pots, but big plastic summer bedding type pots that you expect to get petunias in.
I have promised several people the photos to prove that it can be done, so here we are – better late than never…

Not only did they look great but they tasted fantastic as well. The carrots were especially good!

They look fantastic. Looks like we need to try growing carrots in pots, our attempts in clay soil were somewhat feeble.

Home grown always taste better!
P.S. A new word for me - allotmenteer!

The only success I had with carrots was in sandy soil. One day I will grow vegetables. That's why, last year, I made a HUGE cold frame/ very small greenhouse complete with double glazing! It's all a matter of time and priorities.

Well done Bryony.
