My Seven Current Favourite Gardening Blogs
I spend a lot of time online looking at all the great (and not so great) advice out there, so I can see what sort of questions people are asking, and so I can learn a load of stuff.
There are thousands of gardening related blogs. Some of them are fab. Some of them are a waste of time. Some of them are entertaining rather than useful, and loads of them are lovely but nothing to do with growing food, or kids, or both.
But here are my current favourite seven blogs (not in any order) which have good veggie gardening sections. They are not really aimed at children, just at gardeners, and there is a real range. Check them out!
So I hope you will like my picks.
P.S. What are your favourite gardening blogs or websites?

Garden Crafts For Children by Dawn Isaac I hope you won't mind me mentioning Chr***mas when it's still only November, but I have a great recommendation for a stocking filler for a child in your life. I'm not on some kind of commission or something(!) I just genuinely think it is a lovely book.

Grow Your Own Vegetables by Joy Larkcom It's that time of year when you can't get an awful lot done in the cold, wet muddy garden, and even if you could, your heart is longing for a warm fire, thick socks and hot chocolate. But you can keep yourself happy by planning the year ahead. Flicking through seed catalogues (what my other half refers to as garden porn...) and cooing over all the things you'd love to grow is an essential part of the veg growers year. It's eas...
