It’s coming up to that time of year when Vegetable patches will need to be sowed. Despite the weather today, and perhaps this whole week, we are now in Spring!! Growing vegetables if a good way to get out into the garden, it doesn’t matter whether you have a window box or acre plot, you can grow something to suit your needs.

The best thing about growing vegetables is the satisfaction of putting them on your plate. You certainly can taste the freshness of a Tomato which has just been picked that day. It is also an interesting way to get children into the gardening. Switch off the games console, nip to your local nursery and pick up a few packets of seeds. Someone in store will be able to provide any information you need to start planting, as some seeds are easier then others, and some vegetables for instance Cucumbers are even easier to grow from seedlings. Children will enjoy monitoring the progress of their crop and it will give them appreciation for the work which goes into producing the food which goes onto their plate.

We manufacture Children’s Tools which make it that little bit easier for them to get involved. It is also our product of the week! Often when purchasing children’s tools they are billed as toys rather then tools, but this is not the case with ours. They are made in the same way as the full size tools and are just as strong!

Growing your own fruit and veg is also a good way to cut your food bill, and in these tough times it appears everyone is feeling the pinch and with growing fears for the environment we should all be doing our bit. Check out this article from The New York Times Obama is the first president to have his own vegetable patch since World War 2!

Good luck with your crop! If you’ve got any pictures or blogs on your progress feel free to send them
Happy Planting!
