Leeks, still lots left but nothing else now.  However I do like the look of clear ground, minus any weeds!

Late Summer leeks, brilliant brussels, kale, parsnips, and the last swede ( turnip ) of the year.
Over the last 3 or 4 years I now consider myself a reliably proficient Brussel sprout grower. What made the difference ? Timing, an F1 variety, windrock awareness and proper netting. Ugly but very effective.

The last of the turnips and a few leeks.

I pulled the last couple of swede, but deemed them too pitiful to take home, plus they seemed to have been invaded.  Deep holes burrowed into them and beasties lurking inside  :ohmy:  Off to the compost heap for them  ::)
