    Have to say it's something I've been thinking about too (and I hate gardening).

    It's interesting that in France it seems the first priority is to put in a vegetable garden whereas in the UK the first priority is (usually) to make the garden look pretty.

    Growing in soil I found to be a nightmare, look up "Aquaponics" on your favourite search engine/youtube, it's addictive!

    Unfortunately you'd need detailed instructions on "How to bypass the Electric Meter in domestic premises without getting caught" for the demand associated with the type of crop you're alluding to! :)
