Re: What interesting or unusual edible plants have you grown

I know someone who grows kudoo specifically for it's shading properties in a polytunnel so up and over a pergola so she can use the space beneath for growing spinach and other things that like to bolt in a tunnel in the summer months. V worthwhile and they're bleeding expensive to buy!

Re: What interesting or unusual edible plants have you grown

Daubentons sounds interesting, might have to seek that out as we are kale junkies despite doing battle with magpies over it. Grr. Will give yakon a miss then we have j.artichokes, more than we can eat so seems like a non starter.

Re: What interesting or unusual edible plants have you grown

Re: Polytunnels - maintenance and running.

I'm liking this a lot. Do you think you could get that kind of temp with cow poo and straw? I know chicken poo creates some serious heat but no chickens on our site at the moment.
