Many of us are worried about getting the best value from our produce, but we also don’t want to be wasting the environments resources with air miles on food imported from all over the world.
That’s why we’re going to look at how to grown your own food, so you can become self sufficient and remove your carbon footprint.
Problems With Growing in the UK
One of the biggest problems is that we simply don’t have the space. The majority of inner city locals don’t own a garden, and so they’re forced to confine their growing to balconies or even window sills, which prevent plants from expanding and provides a minimal harvest (that’s assuming they get enough food and light during their growth stage).
How to Grow Carrots
The best way to grow a carrot is by planting it in an open ground area. They don’t need much water at all because they’re drought resistant, unless your area goes through a serious dry spell. The foliage is quite sensitive, so make sure not to crush it during weeding or other garden maintenance tasks.
How to Grow Potatoes
I could write a full guide on the lovely Potato family, but the article about how to grow potatoes from Babyplants.co.uk is definitely worth checking out instead!
