Latest on the allotment

I am in London at the moment but David has sent me an update live from the allotment! We planted seeds last weekend for salad produce. I noticed through the week that the radishes have sprouted. Well, now comes the exciting news that the lettuce seeds are sprouting as well!

Salad crops are great for people who are starting out on growing a bit of their own food. They grow easily in pots and window boxes. We have a set of window boxes on our garden wall in London which we use for growing herbs but have used in the past for lettuce. Actually, most of them currently have a crop of sycamore saplings. This is my carbon sink. In a few years time, I will be looking for homes for them.
