The veggie garden update

Things have been a little slow on the gardening front. A broken toe kept me out of work boots for a few weeks and last weekend I finally tidied up my garden and started planting the autumn and winter veggies.

Never really tried growing anything much in winter but this year I have planted broccoli, brussell sprouts, broad beans, sugar snap and snow peas, dwarf beans and some cylindrical beetroots.

Am keen to try some other heritage veggies but am not sure where to go from here...catalogues like Diggers I am guessing will be my best source of the heritage type veggies.

Thinking a green house might be a good investment too...herbs and tomatoes etc in winter would be fabulous.
