Growing Our Own Veggies: May Checklist

3 05 2010

growing our own in may

As the last Spring frost was calculated to be late April for Southern UK, this SHOULD mean that your precious seeds and seedlings are safer outdoors now. It’s starting to get busy for food growers, but there’s no need to be daunted, and remember if you’re new to it, keep it simple – less will be more if you want to sustain your motivation. Remember, year one is more about learning and growing in confidence than it is about reaping an entirely self sufficient harvest.

Here’s our checklist for May.

You’re so right about keeping it simple – last year I planted some of everything I wanted to try – I ended up with hardly any veggies at all! This year I will start with some basics!

Thanks for your comment, Sarah. Keep us posted on how you get on.

Your book on Elder looks fascinating, by the way.

When are elderberries in season in the UK? Would you like to send us a recipe and some info to add to our database and to our sister-site, Ooffoo, in exchange for a plug and a live link to your Elder book promo page?

Looking forward to hearing back from you,

Claire @ VBR
