Christmas Dinner All Homegrown

karen_in_veg_patch (2)Here’s some growing inspiration!

Karen and Ian started growing their own five years ago and now grow fruit and vegetables in the front garden and in one of London Borough of Waltham Forest’s allotments on Oliver Road.

Last Christmas, apart from the turkey, the entire three-course Christmas dinner was home-produced.

They grow: multiple types of apples, pears, yellow and Victoria plums, greengages, damsons, cherries, raspberries, blackberries, green and black gooseberries, strawberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, loganberries, tayberries, josterberries, carrots, parsnips, potatoes, onions, beetroot, cabbage, kale, leeks, spinach, courgettes, squash, butternut squash, runner beans, sweetcorn, peas, grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, peppers, chard, herbs and garlic.

Wow!
