December January February

The winter weather does not stop us at MoreVeg. Trial varieties are arriving - we love unpacking seeds, all those colours and shapes ready to burst into life as soon as they are given the opportunity). At this time of year the plot plan resembles a jigsaw that we are juggling with to fit everything in. Somehow it is all ready for when we get busy with sowing and growing. We love early winter: the parsnips are ready to say nothing of all the other veg that is best eaten with a hot dinner on a cold day. It is hard not to start sowing everything as soon as the first warmer day comes along however, depending on where you are, February can be the time to start early crops off under cover.
