New Allotment but what to grow now?

Posted: 10/08/2014 at 15:32

If you look at thread 'growing times', by medavid ... I have listed loads of veg that can go in now or soonish.

The ones I listed should be grown out of doors, unless you are far North in UK, except the 2 for a greenhouse with a frost buster, so it does not go below freezing; though you could happily grow those 2 on a windowsill in the house.

Very soggy here, had loads of thunder earlier, but it is warm, so it's better than a slap round the face with a dead mackerel

In the g/h Basil Greek and Watercress.

All from seedaholic.com very cheap and they tell you what you can plant month by month

That sounds good

Are you finding this is a poor season?

Most crops have done well here in the Fens, but greenhouse toms are tasteless (outdoor Marmande are superb though) Quince tree has only one fruit, but quite a load of pears ripening now. The first runners came through shaped like this - C, which was odd; they have reverted to normal now Flowers are the tallest they have ever been, which means a fine crop of canes holding them up. Soft fruit has been brilliant.
