There’s little better than cooking with vegetables and herbs picked straight from your garden, and with the growing focus on food miles and eating as healthy and sustainably as possible, growing your own veggies makes a lot of sense. It can, however, prove challenging if you live on a small block, and particularly difficult if you are renting. (more…)
As much as possible I try and eat vegetables that are in season and therefore haven’t travelled huge distances to the shops. I also like to support local farmers and so used to do as much of my veggie shopping as possible at farmers markets. I started finding it difficult to be able to get to them consistently enough to keep me going so late last year I started ordering a fortnightly delivery of organic veggies, dropped right at my door.
