Give Self-Sufficiency a go! Growing Your Own
Has lockdown got you thinking about how self-sufficient you could be?
Gardening and growing your own can be enormously fulfilling especially as you can grow your own produce which can go from garden to plate in a matter of months. On the other hand if you just enjoy gardening it can be so enjoyable watching plants grow through the season and getting a sense of achievement when a flower pops out and puts a smile on your face.
Don't be afraid to give it a go, winter is the perfect time to start planning. If you have a small patch of grass or soil start to prepare the ground ready for planting in February / March. If you don't have any ground space get your self a Garden Planter which will get you off to a great start if space is limited.
There a some relatively easy ways to start - onions and potatoes are simple and a great start in your steps of becoming more sustainable. It doesn't have to stop here in your quest to becoming more sustainable why not try creating your own Herb Garden, fresh thyme, sage, mint, coriander are all relatively simple to grow. Get fresh herbs in your kitchen in a matter of weeks.
