My outdoor ones are now producing curds. Winter Roscoff, an old variety re-introduced by the Irish Seed Savers Association takes almost a full year to produce a curd but what a great time to do it. The leeks are bolting, the carrots are getting a bit hairy, and the potatoes a bit wrinkly. They can reach enormous size and can sometimes go perennial. I grew a few last year for the house and although most of them died two have survived to produce for another year, producing a head on each of several stems.
Until now I have kept really poor records of when things happen in my garden but all that is going change. Phoebe Bright has started a 'Seed Trials' website into which I am going to put this sort of data into. It will be really interesting to have data on things like the date Winter Roscoff cauliflowers are ready. Will they be earlier in Cork than in Leitrim? If anyone else is interested in joining the Seed Trials website, do let me or email@example.com know.
