Growing Your Own

Last year we successfully grew a few tomatoes. Not enough to really do anything major with towards our grocery shopping, but enough for Steve to create some Italian Tomato Sauce with that I used in 3 lots of Spag Bog.

This year we have once again grown tomatoes over the summer, along with spinach, lettuce, carrots and courgettes.
The boys have enjoyed watching things grow at super fast speed and also had fun being able to collect lettuce from the garden in the morning for daddy's salad that he takes to work each day.

finally going red, although they really are taking a long time!

Maybe next year we will venture and try something else, like corn
