Our vegetable box scheme this year will include courgettes, tomatoes, broad beans, peas, potatoes, kale, cauliflower, carrots, beetroot, squash and sweetcorn to name but a few. We are growing many varieties of each, and some heritage ones to. I can't wait to see what the plants look like when they fruit as there aren't any pictures on the packets for guidance!
The black container above is filled with comfrey leaves. These are to be used as plant food and were discovered on site. Plant food for free!
As well as vegetables, we are growing lots of flowers to use as companion plants. These include different types of sunflowers, tagetes and marigolds. All useful for the bees and insects and pretty to look at too.
