Veg growing week-by-week

Visit here for up-to-the-minute news posts about what’s growing and being harvested – RIGHT NOW –  in veg beds locally and around the UK. As a grower it’s important to get in tune with the seasons and to sow, plant and harvest at the right time, so here you’ll find the latest news from several of the UK’s best.

1) Frith Farm in Beverley, 2) Garden Organic in Coventry and 3) The Real Seed Company in Pembrokeshire. Click on the photos for more information, you do not need Facebook.

If you have a bumper harvest, maybe you’ll be able to pledge some of your harvest to to Freedom Feastival in September?
