New this season

What are you changing this season,adding to your must grow list ?
For what reason?


Changing varieties you have grown previously ?
Something new you have never grown before!!

Lets say because last year certain varieties failed, or just for a change...maybe you feel a complete change is of need....

I've been looking at "Claytonia"or sometimes known as Winter Pulsane" and "Miners Lettuce"...never grown it...never Knowingly tasted it...

But hey! its a new adventure.....Don't knock it till you tried it...  



So what are you changing, or even doing different this season...new varieties...or just sticking to your tried and tested....?

Could be interesting ....to hear what you are deciding to gow this year...
taking into account of course where you all live ect...

Best wishes for the 'New Season'..

It can only be better than last ...

due to the wife leaving me alone with the laptop and a card for more than 10 seconds i'll be starting in the poly( as soon as the new cover is on!!) from the Real Seed Catalogue
1. Asturian Tree Cabbage
2. Paris Pickling Cucumber
3. Really Red Deer Toungue Lettuce
4. Double Standard Bicolour Sweetcorn
all new to me and i've got to say those guys from real seed's inpressed me no end sending with the seeds a page on how to get your own seeds from the plants so you dont have to buy again next year!

New Zealand Yams are a new one for me. Don't know why they are called "New Zealand" as they are a tuberous rooted Oxalis species from South America. But then the New Zealanders have a habit of of claiming plants from other countries- eg. "Kiwi Fruit".

As far as gardening goes, I've still very much got a big set of 'L' plates on my back. This year, my changes will be fueled by the mistakes I made last season and my change in diet. Lots of onions, sweet and chilli peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes.

We're sticking to the basics this year, nothing new planned so far. So much failed last year that we want to try and cover our bases this year.

Where did Kiwi fruit come from? I have seen them growing in New Zealand. I received a fruit catalogue last week & they were selling them to grow in this country.

Just seen this sorry "Kiwi Fruit" came from here, they took very small fruit called "Chinese Goosberrys" then worked on them to make bigger better (Hawards)tasting fruit which they named "Kiwi Fruit" they were sold to other countries and grow al over. We are known as KIWI's
