I've been reading this:
I rather like the concept. Wouldn't it be great to be able to eat something you'd grown yourself, every day? I'm thinking about giving it a go next year.
There is of course the problem of when to start. I've only got Leeks in the allotment at the moment. I like leeks but not every day! Mind you, once you extend the concept to include preserved stuff the list gets a bit bigger. But even then, there is a limit to how many Pickled Onions a chap can eat. The home-grown wine wouldn't last but the Sloe gin might. And there are certainly lots of Blackberries, Raspberries, Rhubarb & Beans in the freezer. But, however you look at it, there's a bit of a hungry gap until Spring sowings/plantings come on stream. Perhaps 1st April would be a good time to start, with lots of early salads? 1st May? I'd definitely need to get the cold-frame refurbished. It's huge - 6 metres wide and 1.25m deep. Plenty of space there to supplement the greenhouse, and it's crying out to be brought properly back into use. A winter project methinks.
As for the book itself, I've had it on loan from the local library and toyed with putting it on the Xmas list (£15). I'm glad I didn't though because I've found an "As New" copy on Amazon for 1p + postage. Result!! It's in the mail.
