Thankyou Chica, last time I tried that I got nothing at all and when I looked at the ginger it had gone to mush!
We had kale in the raised bed this year. I stole 2 plants from my dad and they have been amazing. I have no idea on the variety and neither does dad. So feel free to suggest good varieties. It's a curly leaf and very mild greens flavour.
My main worry/annoyance is getting hold of plants (veg) the shops stock them in packs of 6-8 and v expensive.
I remember as a child pulling up at houses with signs on the road selling greens and leeks ready to plant in your beds at v decent prices.
How do you all do it. Peas, beans, carrots, parsnips, potatoes we have grown from seed and down direct but I'm lost in what else I can do from seed but won't waste the remainder of the pack before it goes off.
Any help would be appreciated. Or prolific cropping climbing French bean as I don't like stringy beans.
