Too late to grow anything in veg patch?

Posted: 13/09/2015 at 07:13

Aquadulce 'Claudia' broad beans can be sown in late October - they'll grow slowly over winter with no need for protection etc, and give you an early crop (around late May) and that way they usually avoid getting black fly

Wont go without a fight....

Stuffed with pizza, now on the sofa with a Campari and soda and the wonderful Jonas Kaufman (Last Night of the Proms). 

Will I stay awake for the bobbing up and down and the hornpipe?

Shopping, particularly in the GC, has been reported as leading to exhaustion and starvation Jo - chocolate prevents this - it's well known

Don't know what others do, but when we had it the plants went in the council garden waste bin.  If you have the facility to burn it then I'd do that.

So much depends on weather conditions and whether there are affected potatoes/tomatoes nearby.

There are some varieties that are supposed to be blight resistant but I've not tried them. 

I've found that removing lower leaves as soon as the first truss has formed, thinning foliage as the season progresses and keeping leaves as dry as possible has worked this year, but it may just have been my turn for good luck
