Home Grown Lunch

Home growing is not always easy! Yes I support the laudable idea of the Foodival #seedtofeast but hey slugs, aphids, snails & caterpillars don't make it easy.  However, that said, August is a month when one can cull from one's humble cottage insect attacked vegetable patch a meal that is totally local, organic, non-food miled, low waste and energy efficient!

Please witness the above, clockwise from the top left: chard, choy sum, spring onion, cherry tomato, Lamb's lettuce, rocket & celeriac leaf. All grown from seed! This was my lunch. Some CO2 was saved. #veryproud.  And it tasted good!

But enough of me and my miniscule endeavours.  What of you?


Growers we need you or the festival of South London food would not exist.  What are you growing?  Can you spare any?  Can you add to our growing map?  You could be immortalised in a frame ...

We look forward to seeing you on the weekend of 12th & 13th September, it should be delicious! dt
