The feeling of biting into a tomato, picked straight from a vine I’ve grown, never ceases to amaze me. We’re not natural ‘green fingered’ types, however, we have got the basics sorted and just by growing, lettuce, tomatos and brocolli, we are cutting down on food miles as well always having food available if we miss the shops!
Vegetables are pretty easy to get rubbish free really, just take your own material bags such as the Onya Weigh or Rethink bags in order to avoid those nasty thin plastic ones, or consider joining an organic vege box scheme and avoid the shops altogether!
