Vegetables for March
March is one of the busiest times of the year. Lots of produce will have you harvesting, preserving and making friends to give away the excess but this is also an important month to get the winter crops in and growing before the cold weather hits.
Prune back or remove leaves on your tomatoes, cucumbers and other summer crops to make room for your winter veggies. Or be ruthless and rip out any crops which are exhausted or under producing now and dress empty beds with lime and dig in plenty of compost to feed your new plants. Harvest early and often – think zucchini fritters, pickles and chutneys and ripen blushing tomatoes inside. When these summer veg are slowing down it’s time to move on.
