kitty88uk I have strawberries and potatoes growing in my back garden. I have same problem. I'm not giving up though there's nothing better than knowing you're growing your own food

We do. It's a bit late now for a lot of things but you can start with herbs and prep the area for next year. Start small and don't expect it to be amazing to begin with. Remember some times and years it all works other times it won't

My parents grow tomatoes and cucumbers but you will need a greenhouse for that. They grow strawberries too. Cover the strawberries with a mesh type wire or similar to stop animals getting in. Also mum puts down cheap beer to kill the slugs.

Spuds in old containers..aka dustbins if you like! Garlic in with the roses..companion planting.Spring onions and radishes are easy as well.A herb garden is nice..rosemary,mint,chives etc. Flowers you can put in salads.Dandelions make great honey as well!

Give anything a go if you can and if you don't have the room use pots or grow bags. I have strawberries, tomatoes, herbs, peppers, chillis, lettuce, i've put random tomato plants around the garden too.

These loose lettuce leaves are quick and easy . I’m growing some now, just put outside but done previously and you’ll get lots, plus they keep growing. Ideal for this time of year.

Good luck happy growing..

LL81 anybody like runner beans? They are easy to grow, lovely just boiled on their own with a bit of salt and pepper to taste.

kennethianmorgn some runner beans I don't mind I prefer the smaller ones than the big fat ones. Some people put butter on them and season them.

I have scaled down this year, I just have potatoes, strawberries, spring onions, Onions, Carrots and a Marrow.

My only tip is, enjoy it! I enjoy littering about doing it. First harvest of your produce is amazing, my son gets really excited x

possy wow that's fantastic. I'm growing strawberries and potatoes at the moment. I know what you mean when it's harvest time it's exciting to know you've grown it yourself I'm loving it. Maybe I'll try growing onions and carrots too.

mumstheword26 it is. I find onions really easy. I have done garlic and beetroot previously. I should really grow my own flowers x
