last year was my first time growing veg so i started small with the veg thats is easiest to grow and had some nice sucess
so this year i am getting brave and growing even more with the thought in my head that faliure is just a reason to try harder next year
so this year i am planning(or have) planted aspargus, broad beans, runner beans ,dwarf beans, carrots, parsnips, butternut squach , mustard greens, beetroot, cauliflower,broccli, radish, swede, baby turnips, a few chlli plants, and trying to grow plums from seeds( i already have two big plum trees) quite a few differant types of letuce garlic

just a little of each to see how i do
all my berry bushes lasted the winter so happy about that nice little selection of them
lost one of the apple tress but the pear tress are fine
and i set up a little herb garden with rosemary thyme gold thyme and french thyme parsley mint ginger mint oreagno majorum chives and garlic chives
and i just potted some cuttings from a bay tree hope they take

Hi Chef,

You are growing quiet a lot, do you have a large space to grow it all in?
I have a small garden but my plan has been to grow what I like to eat and what I can store for over the winter, and it has been successful.

This year I plan to grow a lot of herbs for drying and storing to use in cooking over the winter months. Last year I put some of my herb tubs in the green house to use over the winter but the frost froze the door shut, but it did save all the herbs so I have a lot to use already.

Keep us posted with your plans
