A new site called myveggiepatch.com is selling all the benefits of having a decent vegetable garden, that is vegetables, without all the work - weeding and so on.

Through the site, wannabe urban gardeners and other e-potatoes can buy a patch of arable land in the countryside, which will then be cultivated by myveggiepatch.com to the patch-owners' specifications. The plots start at £495 per annum.

You tell them what to plant, and specify how you want it looked after, and they will do all the hard work for you.

Then, when it is harvest time, they will deliver all your freshly grown produce to your door. The site has a "Vegetable of the Week" section and recipe idea of what to do with your newly grown greens.

They also plan to sell out of season produce such as fruit that they have grown in their greenhouse.

We think this has to be one of the cutest ecommerce ideas out there - if pricey - and the next logical step from ordering organic vegetables online for delivery.

Myveggiepatch.com is not yet officially organic, but they are waiting for Soil Association membership. Their land has been untreated for five years, but under EU legislation can only be called Organic after a two-year conversion process. ®
