Here is chris' (9 yr old) spinach, he only eats spinach and lettuce and the odd carrot and maybe a pea if he is feeling adventurous, so he planted these spinach above and lettuce below pics. This is his second lot of lettuces after the first slug theft we thought it best to keep them in the greenhouse until they are well established.
Turnips! tiny little ones just starting off, I'm waiting till they are a bit bigger to thin them out, to be honest we don't eat turnip that often so i thought it was a good idea to grow some, plus i think they are quite funny! I have been watching carol Klein's programme on BBC2 grow your own veg i love her enthusiasm and passion, its a great programme and she has a fab book too, really easy to follow for beginners like me.
As a family we already do the Eco things like riding our bikes everywhere, we don't have a car through choice, we recycle and reuse, i always say no to plastic bags, we buy as much fair trade and organic food as possible and growing fruit and veg has made me feel so much better not just because its fresher and better for us but because i am proud to see the little seeds turn into lovely plants and bear tasty fruit and veg and to see the boys faces when a new bud appears or how much something seems to grow overnight, its amazing.
