Well we learned a lot this year – not to plant vegetables too close together (in other words, adhere to the instructions on the seed packets!), always net your brassicas to prevent cabbage white butterflies eating them all, only plant one bean plant per cane (not two!) and use canes that are at least 6 feet tall because when those beans get going they reach for the sky!
Nonetheless we got a very nice harvest considering this was our first attempt. The broccoli won’t come to fruition until the Spring of 2018, and more about that in another post. What we did get to eat were courgettes, French beans, spinach and purple mangetout. The beans and mangetout only produced for a few weeks, the courgettes kept going but thinned off a lot after the first frenzy. Next year we hope to do better and keep everything going for longe. They were just too overcrowded this year I think.
