A strange year in every way. Most of the tree fruit got wiped out by a very late, very hard (-6) frost but a few apples survived. Some veg and the tomatoes have been a disaster due to weather, but some have done unexpectedly well. The carrots are Amsterdam forcing, which I showed early in pots in the greenhouse (they were good but as I showed about too thickly, not big) and some outside as well. These have done well, with no carrot fly damage, so will do them again.

This lettuce is lactuca sativa, ancient plant from Asia. I've never grown it before but I think it is going to be my late crop lettuce from now on. Seeds of this plant were found in stone age deposits on the Isle of Wight, so it's certainly been around a while!
