I have an allotment and I am passionate about it. I mostly grow Japanese vegetables (e.g. edamame, pumpkins, corn, wasabi, etc.) and I like to experiment with different varieties of crops and veggies. I try to keep everything organic and avoid pesticides, chemical fertilizers, etc.
My allotment is in Zurich (EU hardiness zone 8a) so it is sometimes challenging to grow certain plants… Nevertheless this is part of fun of growing your own veggies.
