One of the things I learned in Italy was the fresher the food the better the flavour. So I’ve taken it to heart and decided to grow my own. Starting small scale with tumbling tomatoes

 

I thought it would make a great change to your everyday hanging basket.

Then I found an aubergine plant. That’s got to look great as it grows surely…

And the herbs are in. Found an interesting variety of basil with the tiniest leaves but an amazing flavour.  With some peppermint for sweet flavour and rosemary.

It’s a small step but it’s a start!
