Some Successful Experiments!
The peppers have also done well, though the small slugs are now starting to eat them so I picked them rather than watch them disappear. Given better weather (i.e. actual summer temperatures) they should ripen to orange. But I'm really pleased with them and will definitely try them again next year, though I will need bigger cloches for them and for the tomatoes.
I haven't counted the bulbs, but this crop grew from 6 bulbs (current price £4.49 for 3) and some of the bulbs are massive. More importantly, it has actually matured properly (started Feb). So I recommend this variety to those in northern climes, an excellent crop with good sized cloves, the kind you'd be happy to buy in a shop.
Still to come in the garden - more apples, carrots and marrows, maybe a few beetroot?
