I grew Sarpo this year and didn't do anything special, just left them out for a bit in the tunnel and then potted them up. They seem to be growing well from the look of the growth on top of the buckets.

Collected a couple of leeks for a Chicken leek and mushroom casserole. Found some surprise spuds from spuds I had missed during last springs harvest.

Good haul that Clint. I did all my potatoes in pots this year and they came out ok. Just picked a load of Jalapenos and pickled them as well. Struggling to get rid of all the cherry tomatoes this year, I may have gone a bit overboard.

If you have space...FREEZE! They're great for cooking.

Autumn is a bad time of the year for me all the summer veggies are dying off, starting to plant my seeds for winter veg. Feel like I'm going around in cycles.
Had a bumper tomato crop been going since Christmas and still going, though losing there legs rapidly now.

Dunno what it is..
Looks like a mandarin. If the fruit is small and bitter it could be a kumquat. Great for marmalade, as long as you aren't on any medication.

Yes..they're quite small. They're not kumquats...Mrs says they're mandarin so well spotted!
Keep an eye out for any unnatural growth with spikes on them, they are usually grafted onto a lemon tree so you will have to keep pruning those branches off if they show up.

Me too, did my potatoes as well as planting modules of lettuce, beetroot, kohl rabi, florence fennel, coriander and dill. Greenhouse is producing loads of salads. Going back this afternoon to plant some broccoli di ciccio which I have not grown before and some spinach. Everything is under fleece

Started the clear out of mine today and discovered the door one of the door uprights has rotted through and given way. Not sure how Im going to sort that, the rest of it is still going strong 10yrs down the line and I donโ€™t fancy replacing the whole covering.
