Growing Diary 2011

The 2011 Challenge – is £1,000 of food possible?

You can see images and details of the harvests from my balcony and window sills, month by month, by clicking on each month below.

This experiment was shortened by our move to Newcastle in November. From May – October, 6 months, I’d grown £452 weighing 69kg – well below target. I can blame a difficult growing year, but in truth we went away for three key weeks in August and I did also get a bit lazy at sowing salads!
