I may regroup on an old idea.
A few years ago, I grew a garden based on the Wartime 'Dig for Victory' plan, and used some very basic cheap seeds.
I'd kind of like to do that again, only better. I'm thinking of redesigning my old wartime style blog and making it a diary of this enterprise.
I'd be following the Dig for Victory leaflets, and also the books by C. H. Middleton, produced during the war.
I'd be using the cheapest seeds you can get, from Lidl - or maybe searching out the closest varieties to the originals?
I'd be coming down from my 'organic' high horse. I wouldn't be using anything truly toxic (some of the wartime pesticides were pretty out there) but also, I wouldn't be purely organic. I'd be using the artificials as recommended by C. H. when necessary.
If I'm going to do it, now would be the time. C. H. Middleton begins in September, with preparing the garden for a bumper wartime harvest.
