Hi all, I had a walk around my allotment site yesterday & I seem to be the only person planting Winter veg....this seems really odd to me as at my previous site everyone grew through the Winter....I am beginning to think the site may flood badly in the Winter as I can't think of any other reason why nobody is planting things out. Or do you think I have planted my things too early? I put purple sprouting broc & Calvero Nero in a few months ago, I can start to harvest the Nero soon. I've just planted out cabbages, calebrase & kale. As soon as I bump into another person at the site that isn't a newbie like me I will ask about flooding.
Has anyone else started planting out Winter crops?

I always try to visitit the Harrogate show when ever I can and this year was no exception.

This year I got a bit 'Snap Happy' and took over 350 pictures for my blog. Happy to say after vetting them I have knocked it down to around a couple of hundred pictures.

So for those people that are interested you can see the results here:

Hope you enjoy the show as much as I did....Tg

I am looking forwards to the first cropping next year, but I noticed a few sneaky shoots coming up so I have cut them to try. I have plenty of foliage to die back into the crown and my thought was I want roots to develop not new shoots especially at this time of year. Should I leave them if more come up or take advantage of the bonus crop. They have had two seasons so far and usually I just let them grow.
