|St Ives Cornwall - Allotment With A Sea View|
Another cold, blustery, rainy, stormy Sunday in West Cornwall.
So today - again - I'm not actually on the allotment - but indoors in the warm and on my "virtual allotment" - the online version.
Tending to this blog and to my:
Allotment Growing - Website
Allotment With A Sea View - Facebook
So - I'm pondering ideas for the new growing season next year - and surfing around the Net to get ideas and inspiration from some of my favourite websites and blogs.
Next year I want to try a few new crops and new growing methods.
One of my key principles is to grow stuff that I actually enjoy eating. Hence - unlike many allotmenteers - I don't bother with Beetroot or Rhubarb - because I absolutely hate both !

Planting this will also support a second guiding principle - grow things that are not readily available and /or expensive in the shops. Yes - jars of Horseradish Sauce are readily available - but fresh Horseradish Root is not.
Plus - the fresh root is reputedly much nicer - and hotter - than the shop bought variety.
So - this particular idea for next year arose from one of the best blogs / websites / video diaries that I've come across -
Here are some links to her pages:
