I said before that I am experimenting by growing lots of fruit and veg in pots, boxes, wine bags and anything else I can find. Today I found an old bosun's chair, which I got Pete to drill holes in and have promptly sown Pak Choi and beetroot in it! Here is just a small part of the collection, which is all round the garden and house. Today, I have had an egg salad, using some fresh eggs I was given and radish, lettuce and pea thinnings. It was absolutely delicious and very satisfying knowing that it was all my own work. On the barge we have very wide sidedecks and a lot of deck space so I will be growing as much as I can. I have already potted up a gooseberry bush that I am going to put on board now to see how it gets on with the salty winds. I have also talked the boat yard manager into letting me put a rhubarb crown into a tucked away corner, ready for next year. Hope he knows that I don't really intend to push for an allotment area!!!!!!
