Ive just been allocated an allottment from my local council and am busy
now prepairing the ground to plant veg.My quetion is what to plant or
put in now?
Here is a list of the things i would like to grow.
Am open to all sugestions,regards beau.
Turnips, Parsnips, Radish. Radish are quick growers, so you can
interplant with the carrots, and by harvesting the radish, you're
providing more space for the carrots to expand into.
Lettuces, Spinach, Chard, Broccoli, Cauliflower.
Garlic, Shallots, Chives I have a bunch of shallots I've just planted
recently, from shallots stored from last spring.
What, like lima and fava? Pole and Runner beans are a fave in our
household. Blue Lake 274, Purple Podded Pole. Scarlet Runner. Also
peas, which you could be planting now (sugar snap peas are tasty and
the whole pod is edible).
Squash vines will take up space. Be prepared for that. However, the
winter varieties store nicely. Summer squash (of which I have several
started already), are great in pasta.
I note you don't list Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Corn, or any melons...
If you are to have the same allotment from year to year, you might
plant asparagus, Artichoke, and Cardoon, which are perennials.
Raspberries are good too.
