With supermarket prices going up all the time I was just thinking how many people who don't already will start to grow their own.
I am lucky enough to get yellow stickers sometimes, which gives me fruit, veg and salads so cheaply, but it is also nice just to step outside the back door and pick a few things.
We were lucky when we moved here to have the greenhouse and a raised bed already here.
We have potatoes, 2 courgette plants and 4 tomato plants in there, as well as some garlic in between and a few radishes growing along the edge near the tomatoes.
There are also peppers and salad leaves at different stages in the greenhouse.

We also have a few fruit bushes and an apple tree.
You don't even need a greenhouse or raised bed, things can be grown in pots successfully.

|Salad leaves sown today straight into the pot, just pick a few when you need them and they will carry on growing.|
Buying compost can be expensive but I always re use it.
Seeds can be bought very cheaply these days, a few days ago I picked up these 3 packs they were 3 for £1.00 in Poundland, that's 950 seeds for just £1.00
So do you grow your own? Are you going to start doing it to save money?
