Inspired by the likes of Wendle, Geodyne and OJ, I've started to grow my own.

Made three pots in the end.
Still picking beans, and the first of the rocket, but the caterpillars have decimated my pak choi : (

Sounds delicious! There's been a massive problem with cabbage worms here this year; the cabbage moth population was extra heavy, no one got much cabbage out of their gardens.

So cross. I successfully netted the brassicas in the summer, but it simply didn't occur to me that they'd get into the tunnel, and I don't want to spray so i'm picking them off by hand

Oh, ick. The friend who is staying with me brought carloads of her garden produce with her; the brassicas weren't quite ready though, and she went back to try and harvest last week, it was raining and muddy and she spent all her time picking them off by hand too.

She's been doing that all year. It rained pretty much straight through Spring, so they were all over the place. Drove everyone crazy this year.
