Initial Stick in the Sand for 2014

Definitely growing in 2014:

  • Beetroot
  • Carrots (long uns to avoid wireworm that attacked round ones on surface in 2013)
  • Onions (Sensya planted early Nov 2013)
  • Garlic (Elephant planted early Nov 2013)
  • Celeriac
  • Swede
  • Sweetcorn (sow earlier)
  • Khol Rabi (try again)
  • Squash (lots!)
  • Courgettes (may grow at home to keep eye on slug attack)
  • Oca (to replace tatties
  • Leeks
  • Sprouts
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Peas
  • French Beans
  • Mange Tout
  • More Herbs! (didn’t grow many in 2013; looking at Oregano especially as apparently Cabbage Whites hate it)

Definitely not growing in 2014:

  • Potatoes (attacked by wireworm in 2013, growing Oca instead)

Still debating growing:

  • Broad Beans (grew well initially, good crop then suddenly went black and keeled over in 2013
  • Parsnips (not a single one in 2013 came up- sown too early or bad seed? Dunno)
  • ???Mystery crops???
