What veg are you growing this year?

AllotmentMax, I treat French Beans as semi-tropical; germinate in g/house or heated propagator or warm windowsill with cling film or other plastic cover on top. I would not expect much from soil outside. Though I can't see your location, you could be in the Channel Islands

Mark, I too have heard that potatoes will loosen up clay soil, but don't grow them or tomatoes in the same place next year

Philippa, have grown Black Kale before, don't know if it was Tuscan; brilliant crop!

I'm afraid I won't be able to make it; after working all weekend in London, putting equipment away, getting organised to get plants down to Somerset next weekend, I have too much on at the moment. But hope you all have a brill time ...and I want to see photos!

Dove, thank you have just replied

Philippa, the email I just sent has not been delivered; they are saying ; byinternet, unreachable for too long. Which is odd as it is btinternet.

Will now be unavailable on line for a few days; have a great weekend.

Oh I forgot the 4 gooseberry bushes, black currents, pears, quinces, damsons, rhubarb and about 12 different herbs; my favourite at the moment is winter savoury.
