Anyone growing anything or planting out ? I'm experimenting with the Chinese cabbage. First sowings were eaten. Second and third sowing looking stronger.
I've sowed some more all into bio degradable pots to start them off.
Is it ok to use a feed this time of the year ?

The only thing I planted recently (apart from bulbs) are my two little ginger 'plants', one's in the bathroom with the orchids and I'm trying one in the greenhouse.

The one in the bathroom has a green shoot on it, the other appears to be standing still.

I am hopeful I can grow my own ginger, I know it can be grown in Ohara, Japan, which has a similar climate. Very Happy

Think it may be a little late for starting them off.
Anecdotally, I recall a few years back being in a village near Gong'An in China (my wife is from there) for the Chinese new year (late January/early Febuary , cannot remember the exact date that year).
Anyhow it was bloody cold and snowing and sleeting intermittently. The surrounding fields were full of fully grown cabbage. They sow it late and leave it in the field to keep fresh. When covered with slushy snow they wilted a bit but a couple of days later when the weather warmed up they firmed back up, seemed like a good way to keep them fresh. Slugs are not a problem at that time of year apparently.
Worth putting them in a sunny spot, unsure if they will grow much but may well survive until spring for an early crop.

That was for Vincent not you M'Lady. Referring to an earlier difference of opinion on another thread.

So the date of the year end moves around a bit? No wonder the Chinese have many instances of people living well over a hundred years when a year is not a year so to speak.

They also cheat by saying you are aged 1 when born! Their leap years include leap months nevermind our pithy leap day in February.
