Growing Things

8 Sep

Something more from Nigel Slater – sorry, you will have to indulge me this topic.  In this clip from Guardian Online, he promotes his new book Tender: A Cook and his Vegetable Patch.

Funny hearing someone speak after you’ve read them for years. He seems so earnest about growing your own that I half expected him to cry.  Not surprising, I suppose, since the  man can make eating a frugal bowl of lentils sound romantic and not something to be done out of necessity.

    Well our paved SA backyard is starting to green up with new carrots and a squash coming on. We’ve had a selection of lettuces in pots too. Black aphids got the spring onions and chives. The young lemon tree in its pot is sending out fresh green leaves.I planted nasturtiums to attract the aphids away from it.
    I enjoyed the article about Nigel Slater’s “garden where he could hide”. Those long back gardens are just made for dividing into “rooms”, aren’t they?
