So, Tell Us, What Are Ye All At In The Veg Garden?

Recommended Posts

Sorry pal. Missed the subject a little. The chutney for the shoot. More or less as you described. Don't like using red onion as the sweetness already in the beetroot. Apart from that follow your head. Can't go wrong really. Jok.

Been watching this topic since it started, I don't have a lottie, just a small cottage garden, so can't compete with you lads with the veg. But anyway, this is what I have on the go.

Golden Delicious Apples.

Last one, this was just a pot waiting for some thing to be planted in it, and these grew, not planted by me, came out of the compost, and being as us gardeners are optimists, I've left it to crack on, maybe a hand full of tates, or a tom sarnie, we'll see.

Apart from this, I grow mixed sallad in 3ltr pots in my coldframe.

Well what a lovely garden. We don't, as a rule, set out fruit trees as the allotment has it's communal orchard. A few of the lads do grow berries. You'll defo be eating potatoes out of that pot. Nice post from the land of sand. Jok.

I've no room for a greenhouse, the shed at the back is where the ferrets live, so I have to grow toms outside is what ever weather, but I get some thing back, so it's worth the effort. I wish I had a bigger garden. :laugh:

I was looking for a variety of potato to grow next year when I came across this site, there seem to be a lot of new gardeners on here this year so I thought it may be helpful to some one.

There is an automatic wiget on there where you type in where you live and it gives the optimum dates for planting in your area.

Struggling there my self I hung some in the house last year and they went off quite quick but the ones in my shed out side which is plastic and suffers from condensation kept really well. bUt we did use them quite quick any way

So this year I might just knock up a water proof lean too and hang them under that

Choosing what onions to store is a big part of getting it right. Any onion without a thin neck should be used straight away and not stored. It also depends on the variety of the onion to be stored, some are better than others. Red onions are very difficult to store, why I do not have a clue.

 

I was always told to store in nets in a cool airy place once dried, but for the amount I grew they would never last till Xmas as I would have run out by then.
