I’ve been reading the excellent book Our Plot by Cleve West over the past few weeks and in the chapter on vegetables he says…I’ve tried to give an idea of the quantities by noting the number of plants we grow and whether we have succeeded in growing just enough (for two people), too much or found ourselves left wanting.
During last week I tentatively planned what I’m growing this year, where on the plot and approximate quantities.
I’m only growing for one so for most things I only require a small number of seeds which is why I get them from MoreVeg. I’ve bought from there for the past few years and can highly recommend them.
This year I’m also going to try and do more succession planting and sowing to hopefully give me smaller quantities over a longer period. I shall also try to be a bit more attentive when it comes to preparation, watering and weeding.
As usual I’ll be doing posts throughout the year on my progress and success, or lack of it!
