    Thanks Plantologist!
    We probably do have milder winters here although we did have several weeks of snow and frozen ground. I think Autumn King is a good variety, they have suffered very little frost damage and I haven't had any rotten tops.

    Harvested my sorrel seeds this week.
    The salad burnet is looking good too.
    Since Scarlet is saving carrots that I thought were better than mine, I'll contribute something else.

    Carrots and parsnips are both in flower, the parsley doesn't look like it's up to much but I'm an optimist!

    Instead of carrots, which Scarlet is already contributing, I'll contribute another root: scorzonera. My seeds are all ready. Please let us know if you're ready as well, then we can proceed with the swap.

    scorzonera - have you tasted it? I tried salsify which (fortunately) was nothing like oysters, pretty plants too.
    The celeriac is ready and bagged! And the popcorn still on the plants (looks pretty good!) but due to be picked shortly, then dried so I'm needing possibly another 2 weeks? Can you pm me your address so I'm ready to go when it is dry? Thanks

    I've grown them before, and the taste is a cross between a carrot, a jerusalem artichoke and an asparagus, if you can imagine that. Haven't eaten this variety yet, I sowed them amongst the sorrel last year, and at first I thought this was rather stupid, to sow a root vegetable amongst a perennial, but then I read that it's also a perennial, so then I concluded it was a cunning plan after all, and have now promoted them to seed producing plants. It did mean I didn't get to eat them last year, and only sowed this year's after I got new seed, in July if I remember correctly, so they're still growing.
