What can I Sow now in my raised bed?

Hi I have harvested much of what was in my raised bed and only my parsnips remain. Been really good for my first year of planting veg but now I have a big space with nothing in it. Therefore does anyone have any ideas of what I can now sow in my raised bed which will take me into the winter months? Any specific varietys? Really fancied putting in some sprouts but realise I'm too late in the day for this year. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the tips, will sow some more. It said on the pack they could go in at back end of Feb, I did have fleece on until recently. I am up north and we have had a lot of wet weather so maybe that's had an effect?

Hi It's been 92 days since my beetroot (Detroit variety) were sewn, therefore decided to pull one up to see if they were ready. However there was nothing, just some thin roots from the leaves. So disappointed as I thought they were coming along nicely. Can anyone tell me what may have happened?

Early onward peas

Hi I sowed some early onward pea seeds at the back end of February and the plants have grown well to date. However I have noticed that the leaves have a white tint, it isn't a powder but literally a colour change from green to white. I suspect it might have been the weather but would appreciate any help. The plants are still growing so have no reason to doubt that they will soon form pods.

I saw this in last issue of g.world magazine and will try it after this crop I think. It would def suit as my garden is an average size and my daughter has laid claim to some of it with her Playhouse.

Thanks for putting my worries at ease. The veg planter is in a south facing garden and gets plenty of sunlight, however I have has the fleece on for a while. I have only watered occasionally as we have had it quite wet up here in the north and the soil has never really dried out. I am loving every minute of my veg planter, the buzz of seeing something thrive is worth all the effort.

Hi all My first post and hoping you can help me out. I built myself a nice big raised veg Planter in February and I have sown from seed early onward peas, beetroot, parsnip, carrots and potatoes. All is going well and have all shown (except potatoes as they only went in today). However my issue is this - I planted the peas in the raised planter two weeks before I planter a couple indoors. The indoors peas have grown a lot quicker than those outside, is there something to be concerned about? The planter has been well watered has good quality soil and has been fleeced up. One other potential issue is that the surface of the soil seems to have a slight green moss in some places but a quick push with the fingers and the soil looks really good again. Is this a known problem or just a non issue? Any help appreciated and thanks in advance
