Real Men Sow is on a Sabbatical But Here Are 775 Veg Growing Tips

woodburner

Real Men Sow is on a sabbatical. Feet up, in front of the fire watching tele and drinking hot chocolate type of thing.

After 7 years of blogging, I fancy writing about something a bit different in the time I’ve got spare after work and the marathon event that is forcing my wonderful but demanding boys into bed.

I don’t know what that is yet, but it’s a liberating feeling to get myself a big piece of paper out and start a fresh project. It’s taken me a long time to make this decision. A lot of love and effort has gone into RMS but blog has slowed down to a gentle stop and I think I need to find my love of blogging all over again.

I will be posting progress on my new plot on Instagram, so if you’d like to see how I get on this summer, give me a follow on there.

In the meantime, here’s the greatest hits: a list of every tip based post that’s ever appeared on the blog. There’s an average of 6.57 tips in each of the 118 posts below (which makes a whopping 775 tips!), ranging from decreasing the slug population to making sure you enjoy the biggest, juiciest tomatoes at harvest time.

And of course, you can always buy my book. 🙂

As always, thanks for reading and see you soon. I’m off to check on my forced rhubarb!

Jono.
