Grow Your Own Veg was broadcast on BBC2 on Friday nights. Over six episodes, Carol Klein took novice veg growers through a gardening year to learn how to get the best out of their space from the RHS experts at Rosemoor and Harlow Carr. Carol rediscovered the joys of growing organic veg for the first time in 20 years. She also helped a first-time gardener and her family see just how easy it is to grow their own, and showed that whatever size your patch - from a balcony to a suburban back garden - anyone can grow veg. Salads, roots, brassicas and legumes were all explored with a sumptuous harvest in every programme.

Grow Your Own Veg - Simple living - Netflix
Simple living encompasses a number of different voluntary practices to simplify one's lifestyle. These may include, for example, reducing one's possessions, generally referred to as minimalism, or increasing self-sufficiency. Simple living may be characterized by individuals being satisfied with what they have rather than want. Although asceticism generally promotes living simply and refraining from luxury and indulgence, not all proponents of simple living are ascetics. Simple living is distinct from those living in forced poverty, as it is a voluntary lifestyle choice. Adherents may choose simple living for a variety of personal reasons, such as spirituality, health, increase in quality time for family and friends, work–life balance, personal taste, financial sustainability, frugality, or reducing stress. Simple living can also be a reaction to materialism and conspicuous consumption. Some cite socio-political goals aligned with the environmentalist, anti-consumerist or anti-war movements, including conservation, degrowth, social justice, and tax resistance.
