At last I have thought of an aim for this year - to grow winter vegetables. I tried this year and failed. Last year I managed to grow some purple sprouting broccoli but it wasn't ready until April. I want greens in December and January.
I have been looking through the seed catalogues and done a stock take of the seeds that I have and am nearly ready to put in my orders. I have studied my books, read about manuring in the autumn, lime in the spring, not digging the ground over, stomping it down, netting, staking - so it should be easy to grow enough green veg to see us through the winter and eat our own sprouts
Christmas dinner - easy!! Any more tips?
This is my little "green house" or plastic tent filled with seedlings last
