After the miserable weather we had in 2012, we said we would only concentrate on things that did well in the wet. Broad beans, runner beans, salads and early potatoes, but as spring approaches we will no doubt be saying" I think we'll give so and so a try again" we usually do. All our fruit, both soft and apples etc did well, so let's hope for a drier year and more crops. I think we will need to be growing as much as possible to try to save money!
We have got a Peregrine Peach, but have not had a lot of success so far, either the frost has got the blossom or it has been stricken with leaf curl. The few fruits that did set, then dropped off, but maybe this year.......
Purple sprouting broccoli is looking good so far.
