Woman smugly growing vegetables she doesn't even like

A WOMAN is incredibly smug about all the gardening she is doing even though she hates everything she is growing.

Francesca Johnson has posted multiple photos of her allotment on social media, which is growing an abundance of leafy greens and root vegetables she will never eat.

Johnson said: “My butternut squashes are coming on really well. They taste dreadful, but look nice when I leave one to slowly rot in the kitchen for several months.

“I’m also growing kale. It’s really good for you and actually kind of edible if you cook it with garlic and cream to entirely cover up its natural taste.

“And then there are my courgettes. They taste like gone-off cucumbers but the leaves are massive so they look really impressive on Instagram.

“Basically, I’m growing stuff that is easy to grow. When it’s ready, I’ll pull it up and put it straight in the compost bin. Then I’ll go straight to Nando’s for something that actually tastes nice.”
