We're still getting blackberries, but that's about it. Having spent most of this year getting the infrastructure in place I'm hopeful that next year we might get to grow something :lol:

Much more hopeful than in the last few years when I thought we'd have to call it a day. Some of us are just slower to solve problems than others :roll:

Pretty much the same as last time, cabbages, broccoli, carrots, white beet, mooli radish, leeks, tomatoes and still picking autumn raspberries.
Re your PSB Flo, I grew PSB every year since Adam was a lad up until 2 years ago. For the last 5 years or so my PSB and Kale were smothered with mealy bugs making it totally inedible. So decided to grow ordinary broccoli instead which they don't seem to like. This year of course, no caterpillars and no sign of mealy bugs on anything either, so I could have grown PSB. :roll:
I do have 3 new 9 star perennial plants for later in the spring.

I've adopted my Dad's view that PSB takes too long and next year we'll be growing broccoli raab which takes a few weeks instead of nearly a year. Not quite the same but very pleasant.

Ah the mealy bugs were eating the lupins down here.
