Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've been wanting to green my fingers again - especially now spring is hitting South Africa. Most of the things I aimed for have been mentioned - in no particular order I've my eyes set on herbs (the usual suspects of basil, rosemary, thyme, sage and hopefully lemongrass), salads, spring onions, carrots, possibly beans. I'd love to extent with larger plants, like courgettes (I love my courgette!), tomatoes, cauliflower - all vegetables with a large diversity for in the kitchen and expensive in the supermarket. The mentioned three also neatly cover three seasons. But lack of space will currently prevent me from embracing bigger plants. My next dream: to grow a pineapple.

The problem of course is that I can't even start with the small plants because the equipment I will need to start will rob me from my funds to buy me proper quality food. Before I've grown anything, I'll be starved unless I will be able survive on chips and sausages for two months. Which I won't.
