Wot No Cabbages?


Wednesday 06 January, 2016 by Uncle Spike

The sudden cold snap (aka, winter) dissipated after five-six days, and we are back to mild weather, with a mix of sun, wind and rain. The roses were all confused, still attempting to flower occasionally, but now I’ve had to cut them back fully – it’s the only ‘winter’ we’ll probably get, so best we can do.

Winter veggies are again a mixed bag, with leeks quite happy, and celeriac also growing well it seems. Beetroot almost non-existent this year, with only a few seeds having even germinated; whereas swede, turnip etc were a total no-show. As for cabbages… well, see for yourself. We’ll maybe get one or two, enough to use and freeze some down, but most have no hearts forming and will head to seed soon.
