Incredible Edible

I’d heard of the incredible edible movement, having read Pam Warhurst and Joanna Dobson’s book Incredible! Plant Veg and Grow a Revolution .  So I was delighted to find an incredible edible garden in Dumfries on a recent visit:

Incredible Edible Dumfries also has a wordpress site.  So you can find out more about them there.

I’ve been trying to follow the advice in Incredible! Plant Veg and Grow a Revolution to grow vegetables in the front garden but am having a little battle with the elements and slugs.  My herbs are doing really well but vegetables just don’t seem to like the front garden environment.  This year’s tomatoes have fruited but I think they’ve been too dry and the plants have shrivelled up.  There are a few tomatoes hanging on but they’re hardly an advert for growing your own.

Here’s how it looked in the spring:

I’ve been thinking of turning the whole patch over to herbs but I’ll give it a really good dose of compost and give the vegetables one more chance next year.  Meanwhile the lavender in the front garden is absolutely buzzing with bees – maybe I should get some bee hives and do the incredible edible thing that way.
