Making the most of the mild weather

It was unseasonably warm for mid-November as we weeded, planted and admired the wonderful views of Leeds.
 Our leeks

We were excited to see that the broad beans sown four weeks ago are already 2 – 3” high.  Let’s hope the pigeons leave them alone.

We planted up onion sets, Senshyu white and Electric red, shallots Jermor and garlic Germidour.  In fact, the very ingredients for Yorkshire More’s Three Onion Chutney!
November is a good month to plant garlic.  If you fancy growing your own, the cloves can be planted in seed trays or modules, kept out of the frost and planted out in the Spring.
