Foodies: Grow your own organic vegetables & herbs
You don’t need a farm or even a garden to grow your own organic herbs and selected vegetables. Many of the plants and seeds available from this lovely site will grown on your windowsill. What’s more, they are beautifully presented in an eco-friendly way and there’s a lovely variety to choose from. These are a lovely treat for yourself and make wonderful gifts for the planet-conscious food-lover.
Imagine a simple (and simply delicious) tomato and basic salad … pick cherry tomatoes from your own vine, slice and add to a plate. Add leaves of your organic basil that you’ve grown yourself in its pot make from sustainable bamboo. Sprinkle with freshly-ground black pepper, add a drizzle of olive oil and you have a healthy and tasty lunch or side dish that you’ve made yourself – from your own home-grown produce – in not much more than a minute. Lovely! And what a wonderful way for kids to learn about nature, growth and the environment.
