VEGGIE GROWING | HARVESTING AND STORING SPINACH

FED UP OF WILTED SPINACH IN YOUR FRIDGE? ME TOO! NOW I CAN KEEP MY GREENS FRESH FOR TWO WEEKS.

It's fair to say I've made many mistakes when it comes to storing veggies. Those beautiful fresh tomatoes? Shoved in the fridge to wrinkle and shrink. Crisp spinach and greens from the garden? Left in a bowl in - you guessed it - the fridge to wilt in a matter of hours. Then I whacked down the temperature and ended up with frozen sludge instead. DOH.

VERTICAL GARDENING | GROWING STRAWBERRIES

STRAWBERRIES - THE EASIEST FRUIT TO GROW, THE HARDEST FRUIT TO HARVEST. 

Why? Because slugs. That's why.

Have you ever watched your strawberry crop growing and been wide-eyed every day as those beautiful red fruit swell? Then you've gone to pick your harvest only to find slugs have beaten you too it! And it really sucks. I mean, slugs DON'T EVEN HAVE A PROPER BRAIN

GARDEN WEEDS | ERADICATE THEM WITH RAISED BEDS

LET ME TELL YOU A STORY....I WAS ONCE A TERRIBLE VEGETABLE GROWER.

Why? Because as soon as weed season began, working down at the allotment became too much like hard work. I wasn't growing; I was weeding. Always. Every weekend. Forever. And when May, June and July came around (typical holiday times), I would begin to panic because even one weekend away meant weeds would get the upper hand.
