If you want perfect looking Veggies....................

Don't grow your own!!! I'm serious, if you are one of those anal people where everything has to be perfect shape, unblemished, not poo'd on by ducks, neat and tidy, then home grown veggies are not for you BUT ......................... If you want flavor, color, texture, taste, nutrition, chemical free food like you have never tasted before, then have a GO!!! You will get carrots that look like human anatomy, potatoes big enough to feed four, enough zucchinis to feed a small nation, tomatoes that people will dribble over, basil that you can smell a mile off and pumpkins to trade for a massage!!! Start with a tomato in pot and you will end up with passion fruit climbing over your pergola!!

Go on, Get out there, Get those hands dirty!!!!!!!!!!

I have just bought a whole bunch of salad and herb seeds - will be getting out into the garden this weekend! Your pumpkin looks so tasty.

I meant to comment on this yesterday, but found myself too busy rinsing off the dirt, slugs and insects off the vege Joe had brought home and thought that was a funny coincidence! We love homegrown, slugs and all! It makes me mad to hear we have to ramp up food productivity, we just have to learn to eat food that's not 'perfect' to look at...
