"Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad." Tad Dorgan
If your vegetable growing has been restricted it’s not too late to try growing mushrooms outdoors on a log or indoors in ready-prepared boxes – you can buy kits on the Internet or from the garden centre. You could even try growing Shiitake mushrooms for the exotic touch to add to your stir fries – Dobies do the mushroom plugs and you can order online. Under glass you can grow lettuce, chicory, endive and radishes, and while you’ll need to buy your tomatoes from the shops you’ll still have plenty of your own grown salad to go with leftover turkey or in well-stacked club sandwiches.
