Peas - Started to pick them 19/6/03. Planted more plants throughout June. See tips for reason why. During June, we've suffered from some MAGGOTY PEAS.
Carrots (New Red Intermediate) - A poor yield so far, due to what we think is CARROT FLY. Have planted some more rows, only this time, we've gone back to AUTUMN KING variety, as we had a good crop of these last year. Still the yield wasn't that good, but it's all down to trial and error when trying new varieties.
Parsnips (The Student) - A good crop, considering we only grow 1/2 a row. Range in size from 8 inches to over 1 foot in length.
Onions (Reds and Whites) – All dug up (about 4 rows in all), and 4 new rows sown to grow over winter.
