June July August

We find it impossible to choose our favourite time of the year but summer in the garden it is hard to beat as there are seeds to be sown, seedlings to plant, crops to watch over and harvesting to be busy with. The plot is exuberant, filled with promise, and finding spaces for everything is becoming a challenge! Time found to sit on a bench and take it all in is food for the soul, followed by browsing with a basket to bring the freshest food home for the table (and tummy!)
Sowing in succession means that crop harvesting is spread out – you can enjoy a wide choice of fresh food at any time while avoiding a huge bout of harvest and processing a crop so that much ends up in the freezer straight away. MoreVeg packet sizes are ideal to help you get the best from your plot to your plate.
