Sorrel - is it a herb or is it a vegetable? Who cares!
Tart, tangy, lemony and sour are all words used to describe this versatile green, a great ingredient in salads or as a substitute for spinach. Are you growing it at your place? Here's how to start > http://ow.ly/ARdz30cldq7 #greens #sorrel #gardening #growyourown

Asparagus crowns are in the nurseries and hardware shops at the moment, so it seems a good time to look at both the planting and maintenance of Asparagus. They are one of the easiest vegetables to grow and will produce year after year with very little maintenance. Learn how to grow your own, today on the blog > http://ow.ly/jeH530clcPd #asparagus #growingasparagus #asparagusspears #wintergarden

Just love the autumn colour on my blueberries, such a great productive plant and a fabulous looking garden plant as well. Why not plant one in your backyard this winter.

Popped my first crop of onions in today, but as they are so small to start with and grow reasonablly slowing I am intercropping with short production plants such as looseleafed lettuce and Bok choy.
What is your best tip for space saving vegetable growing?
