Seed list for 2012

Time to review this year's efforts. I have to say, it's pretty difficult to make a decision as it was such a strange growing season. Some veg may have done much better given different circumstances. So...patty pan squash are possibly in (I think I still have some seeds), tomatoes suffered from blight so different kinds needed, carrots were ok, climbing beans were a pain to get started, Turk's Turban was a wash-out and the kale was so-so. Beetroot was ok, as always.

I also took the opportunity of a discount offer from Thompson & Morgan to get new seeds. Here's what I ordered for next year:
  • Tomato 'Orkado' F1 Hybrid
  • Carrot 'Caracas'
  • Runner Bean 'Scarlet Emperor'
  • Courgette 'Zephyr' F1 Hybrid
  • Cucumber 'Crystal Apple'
  • Tomato 'Red Alert'
  • Salad Leaves 'Baby Leaf'
I'm sure I pick some more seeds up on the way. Already have some saved seeds from a squash I bought at the shop, which I remember did pretty well the year before (green skin, orange flesh). Not much to do now for the rest of the year, other than sorting out the compost bins.
