We are delighted to introduce you to our first Seed Pantry Grower of the Month! Steve Harrison from Barlow, near Selby, enjoys growing his own with his three-year old grandson, Jack.
They love going down to the veg garden together and tending to the plants, sowing seeds and, of course, collecting the harvests. He grows three varieties of tomatoes, which have all been picked and added to salads and family meals, as well as peas, carrots, onions, pumpkins and chillies. They have also grown some delicious fruits – raspberries, blackcurrants, grapes, apples, pears – and lots of salad leaves, lettuces, herbs and even olives!
Here are some photos to show some of his harvests this year.
Steve (and little Jack!) – congratulations on being chosen as our Grower of the Month! Keep up the good work and let us know what you are growing next!
Entries are still open for our next grower of the month slot, so if you’d like to feature on our newsletter with a short story about how you got into growing your own, then send your details to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a photo of some of your home-grown veg, salads and herbs and we’d love to feature you!
