It’s been quite a few years since I’ve kept a vegetable garden.
I’ve had endless problems with ants, rats, fruit flies, old reticulation… so much so, I needed to take a break from growing my usual run of snow peas, tomatoes, beans, zucchini and broccoli.
(I do keep 5-6 herbs though, because they are so simple to keep.)
However a few weeks ago, I found half an old wooden barrel and I just had to put some potting mix and lettuce together!
Now every few days I get a lovely bunch of fresh baby lettuce leaves to toss into a salad. Just like my old organic gardening days!
