Tasty and ever so pretty too! 👌🏼💜 you'll have to let me know what and when to sow for the winter when the time comes Carole! Haven't got a clue yet! 😬

Very tasty 😋 @rachelbrooks it's full on seed sowing time now! Decide what you like and what you can fit in your space and start sowing now in trays, but a bit cold yet for direct sowing into the ground. As a guide I've sown a couple of weeks ago courgettes, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines.. so they can be sown now.. and back in January onions and leeks but not too late for you to do those as they will catch up.. and today broccoli, savoys, sprouts & lettuce, enjoy 😊

Blimey! Where am I going to put it all?! 😆 do you grow cabbage through the summer?

😂if you've not much space, grow veg that aren't in the ground long & don't take up much space. Brussels & purple sprouting, take a lot of space & are in for a long time (but are delicious) also grow a few of what you like rather enough to feed an army, for brassicas, I sow a few in modules, so as not to get a glut.. I grew a lovely summer cabbage called greyhound last year.. beetroot carrots, lettuce, spring onions, sown every month to stagger cropping, taking up less space, sounds complicated

But it's not and it's really rewarding when you have your first radish or sprout! Enjoy 😊 @rachelbrooks ⬆️⬆️
