Our blog is dedicated to seasonal living: cooking with local produce (sometimes our own), sewing for the home and searching out vintage bargains.

We believe that most of the pleasure is in the journey - in the making and creating, even if in a simple way.

Simple Small Beginnings

It's probably a little early but I sowed some salad leaf seeds today. I reckon if I keep them away from any frost, we should soon be eating our own small scale produce - and you can't get much smaller scale than this! I would urge anyone to have a go. All you need is a little compost (suitable for vegetables), a tray and a packet of seed. See, I said it was simple.


  1. Good for you,where I work we have been sowing and planting lots of things...as you say as long as they are protected you will be munching on your own produce in no time..
    Warm Wishes,

  2. I've never tried growing salad leaves - maybe this summer I'll give it a go.

  3. Thankyou for visiting my daughter's blog. Aren't you good sowing those seeds. That's something I keep saying I will do but just don't get round to it. Looking forward to days spent eating salads in the garden....

  4. Snap....well almost...I've bought compost, seeds, trays, pots etc., and this weekend I plan to set to......
