Veg of the Month

What do you mean Damn!!?? You got a Turnip article a month sooner :wink: .
I might do Beans might or Carrots as someone ask for them last month. Maybe even leeks as I'll stil be digging them up in February. It's a bit harder in the winter to do relevant veg, it would be easier if I lived in Oz at this time of year

Sorry Dave,

You're right of course :oops: , and it is a good article!

Yeah everything is pumping here at the moment, :mrgreen: which keeps me busy. This has been the best year yet for tomatoes.

Carrots or beans are always good :lol: I must admit that I have never been very fond of leeks (not much Welsh in me obviously) :? .

Ah yes I rememeber promising corriander now, will definetly run that for the herb of the month for February. I think that next week I shall be writing a few more articles, will check through forum and see what else to write about, expect something on soil too. Been a busy time for me lately so I have not been able to write as much as I would have liked. :(

February is a bit of slower month so expect more updates and probally add to some of the exisiting articles too. 8) Also if I can getr my digital camera working some photos of things as well.

I was thinking about leeks, they're a bit close to onions in history/botany and as an allum the nutrition would be much the same. So sorry Emma but I think carrots might be a better bet. I think February is about the earliest they can be planted in the UK. Hows that sound?

I have never grown Vietnamese corriander I am afraid, just had a quick look in my herb libary but could not find anything. Perhaps if you put a clotch over it to warm it up a bit, or maybe a flease around it. Is it actualy still alive?

I would also suggest posting a new topic it might attract more attention and get you a satisfactory reply.
