I've grown the Cucumber Crystal Lemon for the first time this year, they have a lovely juicy texture, maybe a bit sweeter than normal cucumbers, all in all very nice. Definitely grow again.

Enjoy, makes all the hard work worthwhile when we get to pick our own produce.

Back from a lovely walk with better half along the Seven Sisters, walked from Seaford to Beachy Head, glad to catch the bus back as it was getting very warm. Some lovely waves of wildflowers along the way.

Morning all. Bit overcast here, think it will burn off. Off to Beachy Head to walk the Seven Sisters before the crowds arrive.
Had our first moussaka made from our own aubergines last night, yum.

Lots of stuff online if you just want to specialise in veg. Also go to the local shows where you will see an abundance of top quality veg and pick up advice.

I live in the south and I sow my seeds under cover around mid may and plant out in early June.

It also pays to grow them in blocks because as Dove says they are wind pollinated, if they are grown in rows in pays to give the stems a tap to help distribute the pollen down to the tassels.

Sprouts....a pain in the posteria!!!

Agree with all the above advise. last year my sprout tops were massacred by caterpillars as I didn't bother to net them, I still had more sprouts than we could eat. I invested in the rescue netting for this year and touch wood no bug damage so far.
