Try and have some veggies close to your kitchen
The very best place to grow food is right next to your kitchen. As near as you can to where you cook and somewhere they’ll get some direct sun during the day. The further away your vege patch is, the more likely it is you’ll neglect it and/or forget to pick it. If it’s rainy or super-hot, it only makes sense that you’d rather a garden right near your back (or front) door.
Even if your main patch needs to be away from the house a little bit, try and find some spots near the kitchen to grow culinary herbs & salad leaves – you’ll be surprised how well the plants respond to regular visits and how easily you can incorporate some truly fresh food into your diet.
