    The edible garden should be everyone’s dream.

The time put in to a well-planned garden is returned to the grower- they can reduce the time spent at supermarkets, the time traveling to buy groceries, are sure to have something tasty on hand in the case of unexpected guests, and can improve the quality of both diets and soil!

    A Veggie Patch for Taste

    The range of heirloom seeds available from The Little Veggie Patch Co will bring flavour to nearly any meal. Possibly the easiest addition to any veggie patch, chives can improve more than the traditional baked potato. Chives add a sweet zing to dips and pestos, such as this recipe from the BBC Good Food blog. For something that will add colour to your little veggie patch and to your dinner plate, think about adding the yellow pear tomato to your edible garden. This tomato loves to be grown after a pea or bean crop, particularly in a sunny position with well-drained soil.
