Carrots - in Morrisons flower bucket
Parsnips - flower bucket
Garlic - flower bucket
Raddish - flower bucket
Potatoes - in used compost bag

In a large container that is 1m x 1m and 10 inches deep I'm growing

Lettuce various types
Spring onion red and white
Raddish
Mizuno
Rocket
Beetroot
Spinach

In a large container that is 0.5m x 1m x 10inches deep. I'm growing

Lettuce
Mixed Baby Salad leaves
Spring Onions again red and white
Beetroot
Raddish

In a large container that is 0.5m x 1m x 10 inches deep I'm growing

Shallots

In three of those plastic box things that comes with a lid the big 50L ones, I'm growing Kale and Brocolli and I have one ready for my red brussel sprouts.

I've also bought some big polypots.They are like half a bin liner but thicker with holes in. I'm growing.

Ok this is really what I'm growing for next year.

I'm getting lots more raised beds and I'm going to start growing fruit. I'm getting a blueberry plant, a redcurrant plant, a blackcurrant plant and a raspberry plant. I'm also getting lots more strawberry plants. My plan is to have a fruit plant in its own raised bed then I'm planting strawberries round it.

I already have 2 apple trees and a pear tree and I'm going to geta cherry and a plum tree as well. These are all patio trees so they don't take up too much room.

I'm getting 2 raised beds to go by my back and patio doors. These are for herbs. I'm putting all sorts of mints and lemon balm in one and the other will be thyme, oregano, margoram and sage. I will also be growing corriander but that will be in a pot because its an annual.

Then I'm going to be getting another 4 (hopefully) raised bed to grow swede and turnip in 2 of them and onions to pickle in the other 2.

I thought I would get into preserving next year. I'm hoping that I will be able to make jams, chutneys and curds. I'm also hoping to do pickled onions.

So hopfully next year will be a productive one Laughing
