Hi all, seeing in this whole credit crunch time, I thought I would get more interested in vegetable growing this year after having a dabble last summer and growing some nice spuds and green beans..
Any tips anyone?

not a service, just nice people who are happy to contribute to a good cause.dirtybobby said:what in the name of almighty god is this all about? is there really a service in sheffield that provides bespoke cardigans for chickens?? lol
Most seed packets will tell you when to sow/harvest. I did try to find something like what your after myself but didnt manage it online. However there was one last year in a "grow your own" suppliment from the Guardian. Ill see if i can get a decent photo of it for you.Slainte said:Last year I had good crops of potatos, runner beans and some carrots and a little bit of lettuce. My main thing is knowing when to plant stuff, and knowing when things are ready if they are root vegetables etc.
Anyone know where to find an easy to understand planting calendar I can print off somewhere?
not crude- youre running your hobby as a self-sufficient business, why get hens that are at the end of their laying life, its not business sense?wmrcomputers said:I take it back. Just read what i wrote and it sounds bloody crude! lol
