On your plot this November

Harvest

Vegetables

  • Brussels sprouts, kohl-rabi
  • Roots – parsnip, radish, swede
  • Green leaves – oriental salad leaves. Pak choi; leeks. (Wait till the frosts before picking your kale, which sweetens the kale – also parsnips are better after frost.)
  • Stored squashes, picked before the frosts.

Fruit

Pick the last of the autumn fruiting raspberries. There’s also the last of the fruit on the community trees: apples and pears.


Sowing

Seeds

This month we have white onion sets and garlic. We’ve got two sorts of broad beans to plant now.

Plants

It’s too cold to plant out any plants at this time of year, unless protected under glass.


Next month

December/January is a quiet time, the ideal time to plan for your plot next year. We won’t have more seeds and plants until February.
