Salads

Episode 2 of 6

Alys Fowler attempts to avoid shop-bought fruit and vegetables and live off home-grown produce. She shows how salad crops are some of the easiest things to grow.

Alys Fowler attempts to avoid shop-bought fruit and vegetables and live off her own, home-grown produce, all from her tiny terraced back garden. It is no easy task because Alys doesn't want to turn her garden into an allotment, so she is growing her fruit and vegetables among her flowers.

Alys will focus on different foods and show how anyone can grow, cook and eat from their own garden - even if they live in a city.

Alys weaves salad crops through the flower borders of her small urban back garden. Salad crops are some of the easiest things to grow and the tastiest to eat. Lettuces, tomatoes and cucumbers can go from garden to plate in minutes. But while her garden takes root, she needs to fill the hungry gap by foraging in 'the wild larder', to make lime-leaf salad, dandelion fritters and 'home brewed' nettle beer.
