I tried growing celeriac years ago with no luck, but perhaps I should try it again. Those who do grow it really seem to enjoy eating it!
It is certainly tasty! I am hoping for some sort of success with it next year.... every year is different after all
I have celeriac seeds and am now motivated to grow them next year. And those flowers are still gorgeous. Sadly, rodents are in big numbers everywhere.
Some years we have rodent "booms" here: hoping this year numbers stay low! Good luck with the Celeriac seed..we might both need it!
Glad you liked the celariac. It is such a good veg to grow. An allotment neighbour near me grew some but his wife doesn't like so I am eating his too. Love the chrysanths.
I am optimistic for next season with the Celeriac! I am not sure how long it stores for, so will have to find out
I grew a Strawberry Aji this year that had longer wrinkled fruits. They were not all that tasty though, yours sound a lot better!
They are not especially hot but do make a reasonable pickle. The long wrinkled ones are more what I would have expected!
I love the look of your chillies - like little UFOs. I know only too well jobs that need to be done bit by bit. I have some very invasive weeds that need to be removed bit by bit every year.
It sounds like you enjoying working outside and listening to nature much like I do. There are always birds about around here. Mr Carrotty is something else - I get the impression he is smiling at me!
We are almost related then Gloria lol
Wish I had you here to help me work my soil. And your carrots must be close cousins to the many I grew this year LOL
It looks like you were busy on the plots! I am still amazed you are getting peppers. I pulled the last of our plants and they are now on the compost pile.
I was amazed as well tbh, Dave! Usually the outdoor ones are cleared away mid October at the very latest. And growing under cover helps my pak choi escape the slugs, thank goodness
I'm amazed you have tomatoes - mine were done for weeks ago! Your pak choi looks great to me, slugs usually get to mine.
Are your outdoor tomatoes resistant to Blight ? Mine weren’t and I lost so many a while a few weeks ago with the damp weather . I tried to ripen many indoors but it was too late . Any tips please ?
Yes they all are. There are lots of new varieties on the market now and they are worth the extra money imho. I'll post the names of the ones I grew next week, Gwen
The miner's lettuce is probably claytonia, very popular with the gold rushers of North America. Lovely to still have fresh veg growing; ours froze about 2 weeks ago.
Trill you are right... I looked it up. Good to know some of its history thank you
