So what has worked well for you this year and what hasnt worked well? For us (am down south!): -Good- -year- Potatoes - turned into triffids, took over garden Rhubarb (grew ginormous and is still going) Autumn raspberries Sweetcorn Strawberries
-bad- -year- pears - where did they go? romanesco - attacked by slugs, cats and then cat broke through netting so cabbage whites got in. They are still ankle high. Globe artichokes - they just wouldnt grow!!! lettuces - slugs got the lot. 3 times. peas - never get the hang of them.
Do give parsnips a go badkitten. It was my first try with them this year & I pulled 4 up for sunday roast last weekend and one was so big I really, really struggled to get it out - it must have been at least 18" long (and that was with the end snapped off). Tasty too, but they're supposed to be even better after the frost has got them (not sure mine will last that long).
