I have one remaining veg area with plants in it. Over the weekend I did a bit of tidying and some clearing. I managed to make a little salad from two young lettuces 'arctic king', tatsoi leaves and a mizuna that was hiding under the parsley.
I pulled up about 6 beetroot that are likely to be inedible, however, I'm tempted to give it a go and see.
Left: these were planted quite late (mid August) and I thought they were spinach but looking at the photo they look like chard. Something is nibbling on them, but I predict they'll keep producing green leaves well into Spring.
|Parsley (plain leaf) is taking over this area and needs harvested - suppose there's only so much parsley I can eat!|

|The seed pack from what are described as 'cool weather' croppers. I always keep my seed packs and I try to write the date seeds are sown on the back of the pack as an attempt to record what I've sown.|
