    Vegetable Growing 2019

    24 days in and the cucumber has outgrown the propagator lid. Currently debating whether to keep it in there, as it is heated, but with the lid off - or to keep it indoors for the time being.

    Growing pumpkins

    HI Fitzy not grown pumpkins myself, but I thought they were usually grown along the ground. Perhaps with the fruits placed on a board, or similar, to keep them just clear of the ground.

    potato soil

    Hi Buttercup, I've grown potatoes for many years in soil with a neutral pH; just add some good old fashioned well rotted manure and I'm sure you'll get a decent crop.

    Kale ornamental (Sunrise)

    Probably best sown outdoors when the weather allows. Not sure but dont they colour up in the late autumn, like ornamental cabbage. If so your probably a bit early.
