Just go for it. I did in my polytunnel which doesn't get full sun all day. I grow toms on one side and cucumbers on the other (rotating each year) and have had reasonable crops of both.
I have successfully used coffee grounds as a mulch on all plants that like acid conditions and even some that don't. I also add them to my compost.
I usually judge quantity of veg from my plot by how full the freezer is and whether I need to buy anything. I'm not sure I would photographs of some things, especially root crops as I have produced some funny looking stuff! All very tasty though.
I keep an old fashioned paper journal mainly for the allotment. I jot down anything I think is relevant or interesting and enjoy looking back through some of the comments. I also created a word document on my laptop but it doesn't seem the same somehow.
Happy New Year all (except slugs snails, rabbits and any other pest).
I seem to work on one area at a time, dividing perennials and yes, adding to them. I use a few annuals that I grow from seed to plug any gaps in the immature bed. I have an allotment so my seed sowing etc. is mainly veg.
All the best to everyone.
I bought mine from Pomona Fruits. I think the variety was Gynlim. They have taken 3 years to establish but doing ok now
My family thinks I'm mad to be so pleased about these small pleasures until I share the harvest!
There are potatoes and onions in store; cabbages waiting to be cut; parsnips and sprouts enjoying the frosts. Disasters? .... Well yes there were a few but lets not dwell on those. Soon we have a new year so we can start again. Best wishes. May your next year be as good as mine.
