Over the summer of 2009 a primary school and an urban allotment in Glasgow learned how to grow their own vegetables.

They found out a lot about growing vegetables from here, from other countries and a bit about each other too!

We gave them some training and cameras and this is their story of what happened.

Use the links to the right to follow their gardening photo diary and videos over the summer. Check out the How to! video for some top-tips on growing your own.

If you want to find out more about growing your own vegetables have a look at the BBC Dig In website.
