Lisa's Little Kitchen Garden

My Self Sufficiency Journey 

I began growing potatoes and cucumber in pots on my patio in 2020 during lock down and quickly realised how much I adored it! 

Our small garden was completely overgrown with weeds and in desperate need of some love. I was really keen to create a healthy growing space so that I could learn to be self sufficient and grow food for my family. In 2023, we found a lovely local gardener to tackle the weeds for us and create some raised beds and, later that year, I began sowing seeds and growing food. 

I researched daily to learn how to grow food from scratch. I learnt about healthy soil, composting, interplanting, succession planting, companion planting, organic pest control and so much more! In a 40sq metre space, I grew potatoes, lettuce, kale, butternut squash, broccoli, cucumber, tomatoes, broad beans, runner beans, coriander, chamomile, basil, mint, carrots, onions, spring onions , chives , radishes and lots of bee friendly flowers. 

Growing food has become one of my biggest passions in life. It fills me with so much joy and peace. It teaches me patience, it encourages me to learn and makes me feel connected to the Earth. I gain so much peace of mind knowing that I am achieving some level of self sufficiency, while helping the planet at the same time.

A true lesson in slowing down, being present, being patient and being kind.
