Sunday On The Allotment - Winter Cabbages
Today's main job - planting out my Winter Cabbages - raised from seed and nurtured in the greenhouse for the last two months.
I'm trying two winter-hardy varieties - Tundra and January King. It will be nice to have something growing on the plot through Autumn - and something to look forward to for Christmas and beyond.
Conditions like that are rare in Cornwall - so I have high hopes for my little plants.
But - as ever - we'll see. I'll post progress reports here.
I then popped each plant in - pleased to see good root development - and watered again.
My summer planting is now pretty much done. So I can sit back and enjoy for a bit - and look forward to the next harvests. Coming soon - Courgettes, Cucumbers and French Beans.
