Last autumn I sowed radish, spinach, lettuce, rocket and spring onion seeds in my greenhouse hoping for some winter greens.
Looks impressive doesn’t it?
Well don’t be fooled, the radishes produced lots of leaves but only about 2 produced an actual radish. Most of the green here is weeds. I grew one lettuce,
a couple of spinach plants that then got nibbled by something
and a handful of miniature spring onions.
The only successful plant was the purple one which is some kind of self-seeded peppery leaf that despite my best efforts keeps popping up.
It was not the smug success with winter greens I had been hoping for.
Never mind, I picked a lot of the leaves for dinner, yanked most of it out, fed it to the ducks and then watered and reseeded.
Fingers crossed that I get some actual radishes, rocket and some dill and coriander in the next couple of months.
