As you can see from the photo I have plenty of seeds to be planting this year(apologies for the poor quality it was taken in poor light and on my mobile phone). So having sorted through the packets its obvious my greenhouse and windowsills are going to be overrun with seedlings.
I have two raised beds for vegetables/herbs, an area of the garden that is dedicated to Rhubarb, Strawberries, Raspberries, a Gooseberry bush and for the first time this year a very small Blackcurrant plant courtesy of my fellow blogger Living is a Great Adventure. Last year a small patch of the garden was planted with potatoes, which I will do again this year. I very nearly forgot about the three apple, one plum, one pear tree and a blueberry bush.
Below is the full list of the vegetables I intend to grow this year, some of these will be started in the greenhouse and later some straight out in the garden. I will of course be doing some 2-3 weekly sowing of certain vegetables.
Having seen this list on screen, I'm not quite sure how this is all going to fit in the raised beds or work with my crop rotation plan. I could utilise a small area in the fruit bed but it gets limited sun, and have failures planted here before.
There are certain plants I will not be growing this year. Peppers they just never seem to ripen in time for me, and Cabbage and Cauliflower, after two years of trying and failing I will be giving these a miss.
I am aiming to have leeks that have more substance to them than a piece of cooked spaghetti, and cucumbers that don't succumb to red spider mite for the second year running.
