In the kitchen garden's annual calendar, a number of “anniversaries” have been introduced. That is, certain dates for sowing various crops where you are not dependent on either wind and weather or how the situation is in the kitchen garden, but where it happens as for cultivation for planting at a later time where things are still more or less unpredictable. This means that you do not have to go and discuss with yourself when to sow, but rather can almost go and look forward to the day originating as if it were the garden nerd's answer to P-day.
Thus, for example, the greenhouse tomatoes were always seen on 8 March, the overwintering bulbs were sown yesterday 18 August, and the next anniversary is then 10 September. Almost the most important of the year (sometimes I dropped out of work during the day :-)) Here was seen the majority of the overwinterers who should give the first fresh green harvest of spring. Hence this post in a little good time if others should feel like procuring seeds and doing the same. It was seen:
The Winter Gem salad which is planted in the greenhouse when the tomatoes are removed in October. Protected with 2 layers of non-woven fabric during periods of frost, and new lettuce can be harvested from late March. Other useful varieties are eg Arctic King and May King.
Spinach Palco was also seen for later planting in greenhouses and manure pits. It can also be sown / planted in the open air with a reasonable overwintering, but the earliest (from mid-March) and the most delicious spinach you get in the manure bank. Most spinach varieties are probably just as suitable.
Spit bowl Hispi was sown and later transplanted into 6-7 cm pots. Winters in the greenhouse under non-woven fabric, and is planted out in March in a manure bench or open field under plastic. The variety Erstling is also suitable. Harvest from late May.
Broccoli Aquiles (alternatively Waltham) are treated in the same way as the spit dish. Here in 2015, a single manure bench with Aquiles from the end of May has given a total of 5 1/2 kilos for both ordinary saw heads and subsequent side shoots.
The picture is from the greenhouse in early March this year.
