We're a long way from being self sufficient but I thought it might be interesting to list the foods we grow ourselves etc:
Grow on our windowsills
tomatoes, salad leaves, herbs (parsley, basil and coriander) - with varying degrees of success
From Crafty Green Boyfriend's parents garden
leeks, courgettes, cooking apples, eating apples
brambles, raspberries and sometimes fungi. I definitely want to experiment with foraging for edible leaves from trees next year, basically when I'm cutting down tree branches that cause problems on the Water of Leith walkway, I want to keep the leaves that are edible!
So it's a small contribution to our overall diet, but it's something and not bad for living in the city centre! Theoretically we have a share in the garden at the back of the building, but one particular family have comandeered all the growing area.
What do you grow for yourselves and what kind of space do you have for growing?
