- Spagetti Squash: very prolific, storing well and quite tasty
- Chillies: very hot, prolific and not eaten by the bugs (unlike the sweet peppers next to them)
- Cucumbers: glut. Therefore possibly a failure as more than we could eat…?
- Swede: Not plagued with pests, a bit small but now our winter staple.
- Onions: yep, they were good. Especially early in year – very sweet roasted.
- Garlic: again, excellent ‘wet’ and have stored okay.
- Perpetual Spinach: very tasty as small leaves.
- Runner Beans: there were so many we had to give them away (see Runner Bean glut post).
Somewhere in Between:
- Courgettes: very prolific, F1 1 Ball a bit watery. Green courgettes sulked.
- Summer Turnips: didn’t taste like ‘melon’ as claimed and riddled with maggots. Won’t bother again.
- Winter Peas: sulked and then got gotten by the frost.
- Carrots: dug up by animals then riddled with carrot fly.
- Cabbages: eaten by slugs and snails and formed no significant heads
- Brussells: very small, possibly our fault for not thinning out.
- Leeks: victims of a mystery disease.
