You can still keep up the grow­ing

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - OUTDOORS -

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!
