I love growing my own vegetables, they are healthy with no chemicals. I feel happy when I’m eating something I’ve grown. Buying Chinese vegetables in Birmingham is very expensive, they can be hard to find, you can’t just get them from your local shop. By growing it here I know it is fresh and I can share it with all my family. I’m growing Ong Choy it’s a water spinach I use it in stir fries. When I was little, we would use the hollow stalks as straws to blow bubbles with water and washing soap.
