Like most people I’ve had successes and failures with the vegetables that I’ve grown, or tried to, this year. Do remember that I plant or sow nearly all mine direct on the plot and what with the dry, warm and windy spring seed germination tended to be somewhat erratic, or even non-existent.
Thankfully it was probably my best year yet for onions and potatoes, with enough to keep me going well into next year.
Second sowings of both beetroot and carrots eventually yielded some of each, which is more than can be said for the lettuce. These carrots I grew in a plastic flower bucket and were tasty but rather small, the biggest here being less than three inches long.
The sweetcorn grew but the cobs that did form didn’t ripen which I put down to the lack of warm summer sunshine.
I’m already thinking about what I’m intending to grow next year, which will probably be much the same, but I shall put a bit more effort into seeing if I can do at least slightly better.
