Having grown sweet peas and broad beans last autumn, and planted them out, I've now cleared space for some annual flowers (cosmos, eeee) as well as some more unusual veg, such as Black Salsify, Cardoon 'Bianco Avorio,' both Violet as well as Green Globe Artichokes, Oca 'Orange' and 'Dylan Keating', Field Beans 'Wizard', Cimi de Rapa (Turnip Tops), and Agretto.
I've also bought a large number of strawberries from a wholesaler and have potted them up. I chose Trailing Red Cascade and Senga Gigana. This year I'll probably grow them all in pots, since I'm out of bed space, but next year I hope to have a large bed dedicated to these tasty beauties.
The greenhouse is also housing my tomato seedlings ('Green Zebra', which the Real Seed Co claims is one of the tastiest ever bred... we'll see!... as well as 'Di Parma' and Fiorentino' from Franchi).
So far all the tomatoes have evidenced excellent germination rates. The Field Beans, after a slow start, are also doing well, as are both Artichokes. The Agretto, predictably, is doing diddly squat, so I'm going to sow it again in April - ditto the Cardoon and Salsify, which germinated but the seedlings were too etiolated for my liking.
More reports coming soon...
