How to Make Money from a Summer House
When times are hard people, try to make the best of what they have got and your garden is one area which can be utilised to save some money. None only can you save money, but the use of the garden to grow fruit and vegetables will make you healthier as well as your home garden produce being good for you. Even people who don’t consider themselves gardeners can grow something quite easily.
Take a look in your shed or summer house, and you are likely to find some suitable garden tools to help you achieve some fresh produce – not quite the Good Life – but a contribution. If you clear a little space under the window or if you lucky enough to have a wooden solar potting shed then so much the better. Under the shed windows you can bring on seedlings in pots whether they are tomatoes, lettuces or peas, literally most vegetables will benefit from an early start.
Again the outdoor building can help with potatoes which need the light for them to start shooting. When they have shoots you can then plant them in the garden of you can even buy potatoes bags for them to grow in. What you do is to put one potato in the bag and surround it with compost. It would be best if you then watered it and you will find before long a small crop of potatoes – about a kilo which is pretty good for one potato.
Tomato plants are also easy to grow and can also be grown in pots or compost bags so, even if you have not got a garden, then you can still grow some things. By utilising your wooden summer building for vegetables and fruit, you can feel good with yourself knowing that you are using your assets to help through this difficult time. It’s also good to know that the shed can be more than just a storage building and can be multi-talented.
Residents down in Somerset have taken this advice on board and have the belief that the growing of homegrown fruit and vegetables is one of the secrets for long life. Montacute, in Somerset where the cider apples grow, was found to have the highest life expectancy in Britain after a study or millions of pensions records, with their residents living to an incredible 90 years old on average.
Nearly all the village’s 680 population are active in growing fruit and vegetable in their gardens which seems to be helping to keep them fit and healthy. There’s no record of the number of summer houses owned by the villagers, but I would assume that most would have a small hut of some sort for storing their garden tools and for keeping their excess produce.
Shirley Hann, a life long resident and grandmother, said that it seems that the growing of fruit and vegetable does have a bearing on their health and long life. The residents in the village all have their vegetable patch in their garden or a small allotment for producing these crops and many have a wooden shed to assist them. Charlie Northern, another resident of the village, has been growing vegetable for over 40 years for himself and his wife and this has helped them to live a long and healthy life thanks to their garden.
It was only recently that the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) was offering tips and advice on how to use your garden and to benefit from your garden shed. The RHS has been offering garden advice for over 200 years to gardeners for people who want to use the garden to grow food outside.
