New things for next season?
« on: November 26, 2015, 13:31 »
Yes it's a bit early - but what new things are you planning for next season?

After Snoop's reviews I'm going to give Dunluce spuds a go, and am planning a Japanese squash trial - as many as I can get my hands on. So far I have Black Futsu, Chirimen, Kikuza, Shishigatani - Santa may deliver a couple of others.  ;)

And cauliflowers. I WILL grow a proper cauli in 2016.

I've been told cauliflower (done once well, once badly), butternut squash and pumpkins!

I'm not growing main crop spuds any more, which frees up a big bed, but I am going to try a few salad spuds in pots, Anya or Pink Fir Apple, I've not grown either before - I'll see which I can get in Wilko in the New Year.

I'm thinking - more beans in the empty bed, which ones to try though?  :unsure:

I've got a few more new squash to try as well, Mandan, Pattison's Panache, Table Queen and Buffy Ball - so much juggling to fit everything into the plan!  :lol: :lol:

and Buffy Ball

Is that my fault  :blush:  I did go on about them a bit  :D

At the moment, its looking very restrained my end regarding new things.  I have the chicory that Surbie sent me, a large round courgette that a plot neighbour grew this year called Tondo di Piacenza and a bush tomato called The Amateur.  The courgette was prolific and I got given several, despite my protests that I had courgettes of my own.  They turned out to be so tasty I fed mine to the chickens and ate these instead every chance I got  :lol:

I'm waiting to see what comes in the seed swap.

I'm going to try growing some physalis outdoors, I like them but they take up a lot of room in the greenhouse. The problem I suspect will be getting them to ripen.

New varieties of potatoes and dwarf French beans, but am going to grow some courgettes as OH is now into making Ratatouille which he batch-freezes.

Haven't decided on anything new yet, but have decided what I won't be growing. This year it's dwarf French beans. They join the ranks of spring onions and aubergines, these things I've stopped growing because they just won't grow for me. Anyone else have certain veg that just don't do well for them?

Carrots. If I am really lucky I will get seedlings about an inch high and next time I check on them they will have disappeared.

Just planted a Saskatoon bush for next year, I don,t expect much off it next year. but they are just like Blueberries, I would like to try some other Squashes as well. it is still early days yet and I am still looking at unusual things to have a go at .

Japanese onions!

They're tiddly in their little pots at the moment, and will need to go in to their final beds at some stage, but we're not quite sure when...

Next year will hopefully be the year of the melon. I have one or two  :blush: packets of seed lined up so if I don't get one out of that lot I know it is definitely me.

Hoping to have a go at true potato seed, cucuzza (long gourd) and having another bash at carasello.

Lots of different varieties to try of other things from various swaps  :)

I have a bed full and the excess were potted onto larger pots and they are in the greenhouse
