Don't know if this is worth setting up a gardening thread....... I' m not a very good gardener, but I've come up with a few bright ideas. I've got a greenhouse and last year set away a few seed potatoes to chit, then when it started to warm up a little in there, planted the spuds.... it was too early for tomatoes, so nothing wasted. Got a reasonable amount of the tastiest potatoes ever, gave some to my 75 year old neighbour and she said she started crying, they took her back to the one's her dad grew when she was a kid. They're late this year, the shoots just coming through, but well worth a try. Another thing to try is the "Living salads" you see in the supermarkets, Lidl do them amongst others. Basically, they are a small tub of immature lettuce, no taste at all. Wet them well, tease them apart and replant in cheap plastic troughs, fairly close together, you should be harvesting alternate plants in about 4 weeks, then strip out the outer leaves first, on the others. You can get months of lettuce for less than a quid. Again the same with those cheap pots of herbs, tease them apart and spread out in planters or troughs.... I've got parsley, chives, basil, and mint coming on.
