We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

In our greenhouse we have a couple of boxes in which, last year, we grew green salad leaves. The mild winter and the early spring we are experiencing means that many dormant salad seeds have sprouted. The result is we have an early and unexpected salad crop. This is useful given that in the world of self-sufficiency, fresh green leaves at the end of winter are a rarity.
