Picked fennel, broad beans, mesclun, turnips, carrots, celeriac and kale today. Have a new seed catalogue, so gonna browse thru that. Need to get seeds in over the next couple of weeks.

Spring is officially only about three weeks away. I have begun to organise seeds and containers for spring and summer veges. I am intending to get all my tomatoes seeds in this weekend. Weather forecast looks terrible so will be a weekend in the garden shed.

Hi Richard, perhaps you have been feeding them too much nitrogen?? This tends to make more leaff growth than root....though ive had a mixed bag with some of my beets,some nice and big others spindly very muchly!

Can anyone tell me why my cauliflowers form quite open heads rather than nice, tightly packed heads? This happened to me last winter too. All the foliage and everything else looks healthy and my broccoli are doing fine.

Is there anything I can do with beetroot to encourage them to grow the root rather than bigger leaves?

I am still waiting for my broad beans. I have lots of flowers but not much else. Picking a few snap peas from the glass house

My son just cooked a lovely meal for his correspondence school food and nutrition course, a warm artichoke salad. ( a Jamie Oliver recipe) it looked wonderful with homegrown fresh-as jerusalem artichokes, raddichio, cos lettuce, shallots, parsley, even a few cherry tomatoes that have overwintered well, along with a little bacon. scrumptious! I'll bet his teacher rarely sees a student make something quite as gourmet!

Still harvesting a large crop of progressively growing broad beans...yum. Plenty of silverbeet and spinach still in the garden. Cats have dug up my 6 dozen onion seedlings...I don't have cats, somebody else does. Leeks are doing great, so is broad leaf cress and lettuces. Turnips seem to have stopped growing, though the greens from them are lovely, and the little roots are nice. Fennel is looking wonderful and almost ready to harvest and have had a small celeriac so far...another few to get larger yet. Not a bad winter for the garden, thought most of my brassicas didn't do well at all. Looking forward to spring...definitely!

yum fresh brocollis!! ive just harvested my first ever cabbage and had scrumptious coleslaw.....the days are getting longer but the rain is still fairly consistant out here on the east coast, though a few sunny days in between not enough to really do much....just as well its hibernation time. trying to plan trying to plan....must be organised this summer.
