Grow your Own Tomatoes

This is a great year for tomatoes. I am busy harvesting a bumper crop from my little space in The Village Allotment on the South Coast.

Green or red – it doesn’t matter what colour – they all go to making chutneys, salsas, sauce or are eaten in delicious home grown salads.

Anyone can grow tomatoes – just follow a few simple steps


Harvesting fresh produce is a unique experience that literally brings home the importance and value of   sourcing quality produce that will keep you and the planet healthy.

This can be challenging for people living in cities but in London more initiatives are sprouting every day.Like this supermarket in Crouch End, north London which has transformed its roof into an organic vegetable garden.

The situation is more developed in the US where rooftop gardening is  big business.This amusing video about a tale of two tomatoes makes you think about the future possibilities for home grown food in cities.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
