Productive vegetables - your ideas please
This year I think my chili plant has been my favourite; I love cooking with chilies but that is not the reason why. I like it because my single plant has provided me with enough chili peppers to last almost an entire year (and we use a lot). In comparison, my sweet pepper plant, which is roughly the same size, provided me with enough fruit for an whole stir-fry!
A summers worth of peppers
This week an allotmenteer friend claimed that their three year old daughter has never eaten vegetables bought from a shop! Apparently everything is grown on the allotment, which I think is an amazing claim – even with the occasional lapse.
With such a small plot I’ve been wondering how to get the most out of the area I have, and was wondering if anyone has ideas on what vegetables are really productive, accounting for the time it takes to grow – asparagus is out :o) I’ll be checking out genuisscuffy’s square foot gardening for ideas too.
Also out of interest, If you grow veg how much room do you have for growing veg and how much of your weekly veg is home grown?
