The best vegetables and herbs to grow at a holiday house
June 6, 2017
Select and plant the following range of herbs and vegetables and enjoy the harvests when you visit. A holiday house vegetable garden can provide fresh ingredients for meals. This reduces the need to go to the shops as part of your settling-in period when you arrive, and less to pack and take with you from home. If you can arrive and have something to serve for dinner on the first night before needing to go anywhere, it is a great win.
For some simple recipe inspiration you can find my 10 recipe ideas for meals made with just a few ingredients from the garden here. They are all simple, tasty, fresh family meals made all the better for having the ingredient/s grown in your own yard.
Traveling anywhere with my young boys usually includes packing a heap of snacks. The packing activity can take more time that it does to reach the destination…I am not suggesting you need to plant a huge garden to feed the family while holidaying. A careful selection of plants can have a positive impact and help you to hit that magical point of relaxation much faster.
Artichokes and rhubarb will continue to grow through each of the seasons. Cut the artichoke back to the ground when you visit and it will return next season. Note: It can grow into a huge plant.
