What veggies are you planning on growing 2013?

Posted: 16/01/2013 at 15:11
Too many to mention because Wyvale's 50p seed sell off sent me all of a quiver, I'm sure some of them won't make it in the ground this year. I've got red and white onions on the go, shallots, garlic, some peas which were supposed to be fine over winter (very sceptical about that though) and I have been stock piling fruit bushes from various sales/special offers (strawberries, gooseberries, blueberries, raspberries, honey berries, cranberries, blackberries, blackcurrants and red/white currants).

I can't wait to be able to get out and start planting, especially when the weather is like this. Fingers crossed we all have a warm and sunny year.

Sorry I'm a little late with this but Unwins have a special offer on for Raspberries at the moment, 18 canes for around ??17.90. 6 Polka canes, 6 Cascade Delight and 6 Tadmor, the Cascade are early fruiting, the Tadmore mid-season and Polka mid to late fruiting.


Seeds are up

Tomatoes started now are fine, as long as you are prepared to keep them away from frosts indoors for quite a while. Ones planted later will catch up though, neither is better than the other.

It depends on what makes you happy, starting tommies off now is normally the start of my gardening year. And yes, it makes me happy, so that's what I do.

What's for tea?

Macaroni cheese with lardons, chives and wholegrain mustard in the cheese sauce, with chocolate cake for afters.

That chicken surprise does sound lovely.

S. Amistad looks a real beauty, I take it this is a new variety that should be around next year?

Wow, I love the colour of those Spindle Bush berries!

This time of year really is so beautiful.

Spicey beefy Minestrone soup with cheese on toast tonight, Victoria Sponge for afters, although substitute sponge for biscuit as the other half's first attempt at one wasn't the greatest success.

Pie and mash with onion gravy tonight, the dark weather is making me want comfort food.

Last night we had cold pulled pork and salad, with lemon drizzle cake for afters.

Cottage pie with carrots, peas and cabbage.

Bjay, this is the recipe for Banana cake that I use, very easy and always comes out well.http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/fairtradebananabread_72082

Afternoon ladies and gents, loved all the recycling ideas. Which reminded me, last time I was on freecycle someone local had offered to give away vegetarian dog food because their dog didn't like it.

You do get people offering the most odd things, a single pair of Betty Boop socks was listed once, they would have looked very snazzy with your new laces Geoff
