Harvest in 2018

Last year I grew £168.68 worth of fresh produce in the raised beds and pots in our (genuinely) tiny London garden. I compared my produce to the pricing used by a major British supermarket to get a good idea of the amount that I saved. I also used other sources to price up more exotic produce, such as the pricing on this edible flower shop. So far in 2018, I estimate that we’ve had an average egg a day, but nothing else. It’s odd when you think that we have gone from 28 metres squared to three acres, but we’re spending the first year setting up and so I don’t expect a big harvest although I intend for us to be more or less self-sufficient in meat, vegetables and most fruits within the next three years. Once we get the kitchen garden up and running and the orchard starts fruiting, it should all take off! But until then, I have a feeling 2018 is going to be a bit sparse.
