It's the first day of spring and the garden is really kicking off. I'm big on planting seeds, sets and potatoes at the moment, as well as getting the rest of the beds ready for planting.
I've been thinking about what quantities to put in.
I always struggle with how much to grow, in my mind I need to plant enough to allow for a bad year but this normally means that we're left with a glut that I then preserve - which isn't always a bad thing. In fact I'm currently thinking of increasing my summer crops and starting an honesty box on the road to sell my surplus along with my eggs, a few quid here and there would really help to cover the costs of my garden (which is pretty low anyway) and reduce waste.
The seeds planted in the next month or so really dictate what I grow for the rest of the year so now's the time to do something about it. I'm thinking of lots more quick growing summer crops like salads, beets, carrots, beans and courgettes, but I was wondering what everyone else thinks? If you ever use an honesty box what do you buy? Or if you have one what do you find sells well?
