In April the land we're actually cultivating was just a pile of fruitless brambles even higher than 2mt. We spent almost 2 months trying to eradicate them and we managed to clean enough space to plant 50 tomatoes, 20 chili peppers, 6 zucchinis and 5 melons.
We don't even have running water, we have to bring there once a week 200l in barrels.
And finally here we are: 50kg of tomatoes. No fertiliser, no pesticides whatsoever.
Didn’t have shoestring cut potatoes, so went with crinkle cut. Not as good but acceptable.

introduction, food plants
Hello! I'm Kirsty from Scotland, I grow plants and have been experimenting with growing food in a tenement flat since I don't have a garden. In this hell year of 2020 I've been growing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, beans, strawberries and tomatillos with some success!
Crispy Chickpea Caesar Sandwiches
Favorite autumnal delicacy... Apple Pie! 250g of full fat butter to 2 cups of flour worked out nicely. In the absent of tallow, butter always rises to the occasion.
