Summer Vegetable Gardening in Small Spaces is Worth it


Our Vegetable garden is small made up of 4 raised beds. Its astounding how many varieties of vegetables can be jammed into every available space.

Although our Garlic and Red Onions are not large this year they will keep us going well  into the Autumn and Winter.

The nasturtiums have established themselves along the paths and they look amazing rambling through the hedges –   plus the flowers are gorgeous in a vase.

Remember now is a good time to plant coriander ( it won’t bolt so much ) and keep up with the lettuces, Florence Fennel, celery and cavalo nero – Plus a huge range of winter vegetables
