Will grow Sungold tomatoes next year, love the sweet flavour and they cracked less than Gardener's Delight. Will grow mangetout peas again, they were great. Beetroot, Detroit, were a total failure. Don't grow brassicas any more, from this year, they never work. Think my topsoil is too thin, limestone rock underneath. The pink flowered Toscana strawberries were very pretty but the flavour wasn't a patch on the white flowered ones and they were sharp.
Will grow Cosmos next year as Verdun explained what to do to make them bushy. Will grow more annuals from seed and buy fewer plug plants, especially as OH has given me a new cold frame which is just outside the kitchen, near a power point.
Won't ever grow chillis, don't like them, neither the flavour, nor the heat. Can't see what the fuss is about. Apparently there are chilli festivals in the UK, can't see that happening in France.
