Time to get started.
This year I am trying a couple of new things: globe artichokes from seed. I am hoping they are hardy enough to survive the nordic winter, they are perennial plants so seeds from this year should produce globes next year, maybe a few small ones in late summer this year. We are going to extend the vegetable garden so I will put them in a permanent position, probably next to the rhubarb where I used to put the jerusalem artichokes.
The other new thing will be aubergines. They will go in growbags in the polytunnel. I don't think they store well (though I can always make ratatouille and freeze that), so I'll experiment with half a dozen plants.
I have also sown some sprouts. A bit of a waste of time, I have never had much success with brassicas, but it's so nice to have a few for Christmas and they look so weird sticking out of the snow in November, December!
