I've just finished planning so I thought I'd start a new thread for the veggie gardener, I hope you don't mind. I have packets of seeds I will never sow again in this garden, so I am organising a seed swap at work! I usually raise more seeds than I use and then swap seedlings too! That and the horties at work often have freebies or at least cheapies, I might see if they are amenable! I have lost a bed to the chickens, so I must be more space efficient and think about intercropping and overwintering - which I think I have got worked out, something I never thought I would get the hang of! I have planned to grow these this year, I've had some success with all except the brassicas and I am ready for them this year: Bed 1: Cabbage, cauli, kohl rabi, radish and turnip Bed 2: Parsnips, celeriac, chicory, beetroot, chard with beetroot and lettuce intercrops (I think) Bed 3: runner beans, peas and overwitering kale, leeks and cabbage, with more catchcropping. Greenhouse: tomatoes, chillies, another attempt at aubergines. I also hope I still have raspberries, gooseberries and blueberries in tubs plus an inedible pear tree and 2 apple trees! So January tasks: clean and clear greenhouse and all tools: Jeyes etc; order new seeds ready for 1st seeds in Feb! Actually, now I read that it sounds very, very scary! Maybe I have planned to bite off more than I can chew! Especially as I am planning new flower beds with perennial herbs too! How about you other growers?
