You can still keep up the growing
August (and September for that matter) is a month of gathering, harvesting, bottling and jam making for all ‘grow your own’ gardeners.
However, if the weather is good in some areas you can still sow quick maturing salad crops. An easy way to create your very own ‘moveable’ salad patch is by planting lettuce, radish, rocket and chicory in troughs and containers.
Cherry tomatoes from the vine, sweetcorn on the barbecue, a warm salad of tender green beans and a home grown side salad… with some flowers for the table picked from the garden – lovely!
