Many of us have become converts to the greener side of life since lockdown started in March – and for good reason.
Vegetable gardening offers a wealth of life-changing benefits aside from the obvious (delicious) result. Not only can it be used as a means of mindfulness to check in with your mental health, gardening can help us to stay active.
And, as any green thumb will tell you, home-grown fruit and veg just does taste better than your standard, shop-bought punnet. Why? Because your own produce is fresher, it doesn’t have to go through the long transportation process of your packaged supermarket stuff, and you’re in the driver’s seat when it comes to the use of pesticides and fertilisers. So no more chlorine-y after taste from your fruit.
While all it sounds amazing in principle, starting or maintaining your own vegetable garden can also seem incredibly daunting. This is why books are a gardener’s best friend. (And a failsafe gift when it comes to birthdays.)
So whether you’re at the point of planning to open your own farm shop, or you’re an absolute beginner, these books on growing your own vegetables can provide some expert advice on how to get the most from your marrows.
You’ll be sure to find something worth spending a rainy Sunday afternoon with.
