peas please

So as some of you know the BEST thing about my flat is the roof terrace. Sure sometimes I’d like to have a couple of feet of extra space in my living room but there is no way I could go without outdoor space again.We’re trying to promote as many bees and butterflies as possible so have got some gorgeous wild flowers growing in some of the planters.

However, one of the most rewarding things has been growing our own veg. Last night we picked, shelled and ate the peas that were ready. Even growing in this London air they were some of the most delicious veg I’ve eaten, and it tastes so much better when you’ve grown them yourself! The next thing we are waiting on is our 3 tubs of cherry tomatoes, fingers crossed this sunny / rainy weather will keep up and make them taste as good.

It’s so easy to start yourself, even if you’ve only got a window ledge to go on, get yourself some compost and some salad seeds and get cracking!
