Not so long ago my neighbour put up an absolutely enormous greenhouse. I am talking the kind of structure you could easily have lived in. Full of the joys of early ripened tomatoes and two foot long cucumbers, he regaled me with long (and boring) tales of glass types and the optimum positioning for year-round sunlight.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I have always liked the idea of growing my own veggies but I have kids. And therefore a lawn, a swing-set and a trampoline. No space for a greenhouse and frankly I am not sure I want that amount of glass around my kids anyway – especially not with the number of balls flying about in the summer. Still – I wanted to give this growing things affair a try.

I considered a Polytunnel it seemed a bit… big. For a starter anyway. And then I had a brainwave. Poly Brolly Greenhouse! I have had this umbrella for a long time and I have never used it because I find the concept of staring through a film of plastic frankly bizarre.

So now I have a miniature herb garden. Its a small start but it is a start nevertheless!

Awesome and inovative.
