The Salad Project

Year after year I've planted tomatoes and watched them die of blight before I could harvest them, or had such a bad summer that they never ripened. This year I've decided to grow something a little different.

The builders doing up a house down our street were putting a broken chest of drawers in a skip so I asked for the drawers to use as planters. I filled them with potting compost from The Range (more of that later...) and put a seed roll from Waitrose into them. That was late on Wednesday.

Today is Sunday...

We have leaves! They're growing under a film that will puff up into a kind of poly tunnel as they grow. I'll keep you informed as they grow.
