    Hi Sparrow. I have to swop;

    Cucumber - Wautoma (S/S) - I know its not on the list but its really nice. Tasty, crops well (last year I had 101 cucumbers from 5 gh plants that were started late), open pollinated to you can save seed as long as there are no other cucs about (none within at least half a mile radius from mine last year). Not watery, flavoursome, best picked about 4-5 inches long, and stores well in the fridge.

    Sorrel - packet doesnt say what type but think its red-veined

    Corn salad/Lambs lettuce - coquille de louviers - has stood up really well over winter.

    If these are ok could I have;

    Winter squash - Spaghetti and Uchiki Kiri, and Asparagus pea pretty please?
