Posts 5, money is tight in our household and am thinking now on how to plan this year with a view to saving as much money as possible in supermarket spend. One issue is that i have 2 young children and time is a limited resource.
Not sure you'll save, but I find I eat better. Go on walks with your little ones. Go past your local allotments and get chatting for advice, local places of interest etc.
Keep an eye out for people that sell off excess plants and veg from their homes. Skips that can be raided. People with fruit trees that just let the fruit waste ask if you can help yourself and preserve.
Learn your wild foods and preserve away. Quince, sloe, hawthorn, chestnut, hazelnut, beechnut, wild pear, wild cherries, elder etc.
If you were to offer advice on how to be as efficient as possible in your veg gardening and to save as much money as possible in the supermarket, what would your tips be and how would you plan your year? There is a fine line with being resourceful and taking the piddle but if you don't ask you don't get and gardeners on the whole tend to be quite lovely.
Two 1m square raised beds, one of those is filled with strawberries and the other currently empty. I would treat the empty one on the principles of square foot gardening.
Veg to consider carrots, beetroot, courgette, salad leaves, spring onion, radish, kale, chard, perpetual spinach and sweetcorn. A 1 year old and a 2 year old. Little watering cans if you let them fill from a tap make sure they wear crocs or jellies. Or you could fill a bucket or trug and they can dunk fill the watering cans. Don't be surprised if all they do is make muddy puddles. Also make sure they are always in your line of site if you opt for the dunking route.
Approx 4m of fencing i can put climbing veg against, sw facing. Possibly some small squash.
Acorn types or mini pumpkins My oldest 5 loves sowing, planting and harvesting but will only eat carrots from the garden. Just so you are warned G. My youngest 3 is a soft fruit addict. So I would recommend rasps, currants and gooseberries.

Keep an eye out at poundshops, supermarkets, aldi, lidl etc. Great for sauce for yogurt or ice cream. Let us know how you get on. Last edited by Norfolkgrey; at
