But precisely because I have settled into growing mostly the same things year on year, it is a good challenge for me to have a go at something a bit different.
Following a discussion on the Grapevine at the beginning of the year, I decided to have a go at celeriac - I don't think I've eaten in more than a couple of times - but enjoyed it - and I certainly haven't grown it before.
The seeds are like dust, but they came up in their little pot.
I pricked the seedlings out into modules, then planted out in June.
They did well, as I kept them well watered, and kept the weeds down, and stripped a few leaves off the top of the growing bulbs each week or so over the summer.
