The summer’s nearly over and so you thought you’d missed your chance to grow your own food? Well, you’d be wrong!
I just signed up as a Gardening Guru with the One Pot Pledge® campaign. Part of being a Gardening Guru is to get more people to make the One Pot Pledge® - and have a go at growing their own food for the first time.
Organic gardening is primarily about the health of the soil – and therefore the plants, insects, animals, and people – but this new campaign from the national charity for organic growing Garden Organic, is to sign up 30,000 people who will pledge to grow their own food for the first time – in a pot!
Will you help us reach our target? It’s really very easy …
2. Choose your crop!
You can still sow seeds for the autumn and winter months. I’ve just ordered this Autumn Salads kit from the Seed Pantry, and used the code: OnePotPledge for a 5% discount and a further 5% donation to Garden Organic for every sale.
Indoor growing is really very easy, and my favourite indoor crop is sprouting seeds. Sprouting seeds come in all sorts of varieties; alfalfa, mung beans, sugar snap peas and way more. I’ve just started off a batch of beet sprouts and broccoli sprouts. They’re still so tiny and my camera can’t take a good macro so I’ve used a shot of 2 day old sprouting broccoli seeds from vigilant20 on Flickr.
Sprouts make healthy and nutritious additions to sandwiches, salads, stir fries and more. And you can grow them all year round! Check out Living Food of St Ives for some great organic sprouting seeds & sprouting starter kits.
Join the campaign today and leave me a comment to let me know when you’ve signed up! Only 3 people to make the pledge and I’ll reach my Gardening Guru quota. I know you want to!
