A group of us went down In January one of our main jobs was to get the flower beds and greenhouse's ready for planting.
The idea of growing my own veggies is something that i have fantasied over since the start. With Living Dinners I initially did all organic food and realized that this meant sometimes I was getting produce from a far away land that had travelled a few hundred miles but had some bright shiny sticker with the magic organic symbol. it didn't feel right i needed to get more in tune with the seasons get stuff that was grown locally and spark relationships with growers and farmers. Suddenly i was getting dirty veg straight from the ground, weighed at the door by grubby hands in old Tesco bags. It felt more right.
I have attempted to grow three things in my life thus far, all three have died.

Note to Self. Think about growing herbs close to kitchen door. Will use more.
