We’re well on our way Choosing the Chillies & sweet peppers for next year. I thought we should do the same for everything else as well.

My list is definitely only a rough outline. I’ve not really given it much thought! About time I did.

In 
1 Tromboncino 
1 Buffalo horn tomato 
1 Rosella tomato 
2-3 buckets Carrots 
5-6 Red cabbage 
4-5 Broccoli 
2-3 kale
1 Spaghetti squash 
1 Cucumber 
Some Lettuce/salad 
Asparagus & rhubarb because it’s already there. 
And obviously the already mentioned chillies & sweet peppers 

Everything else is out because I’ll be a builder not gardener next year  Big Grin

Out:

Brokali Apollo F1. Sets a tiny main head and the side shoots are really spindly, sparse and go to seed in a flash. Got much better side shoots in terms of quality and quantity off Marathon calabrese.

Shiraz Mangetout. Looks pretty and is productive, but not very tasty. Will be replaced with Oregon Sugar Pod.

Any curly kale. Little brassica moths and whitefly love hiding in the folds. They ignored the calabrese, Tuscan kale and kohl rabi in the same bed.

New Zealand spinach. Easy to grow and prolific, but has a weird texture when raw and no taste when cooked. Also makes my throat burn/itch.

This list will probably change as I rummage through the seeds on a rainy day, or get too enthusiastic come springtime. I'm also going to grow beans, corn and courgettes in a couple of batches an early and a late

IN
Tomatoes not fully decided yet but sungold, sweet aperatif, buffalo horn, Akron, crimson crush, ferline, cour di bue. I have resolved to reduce th varieties and be conscious of blight
OUT
Rosella unless it goes in the GH, outside it was late and split
Marmande not worth the bother

Others
IN
Dwarf blue kale, toscana
Squash - Tromba, ichi kuri
Courgettes Bianca trieste, diamante, green bush, black beauty
CFB - hunter marvel of venice, lidl's
DFB - fine beans variety undecided, aquilon
BB - masterpiece longpod
Chard - fordhook giant
Carrots
Corn
Beetroot - choggia
Mangetout
Aubergine
Peppers
Chilli
Cucumber- Beth alpha, tasty king
Salad stuff

OUT
Brokoli Apollo -i agree with TMTT
Leeks. I never get them in the ground in time and then they never take off.
Courgettes - yellow ones, romanesco it didn't keep, nice de rond too big and prickly, patty pans
CFB - lazy housewife
DFB - tendercrop, yellow ones
Cucumber - la diva it wasn't any different than BA, konsa
Radishes
I'm not aging, I just need re-potting.

May be you should grow one for the white fly so they don't turn their attention to the others, unless you think you can eliminate them.

Tomatoes
Out: Marmande as never done very well for me and I suspect the current seeds harbour tomato leaf mould.
In: Black Russian. Never tried it before
First time grown this year was Roma VF which did OK but slugs found it very attractive. The VF stands for verticillum and fusarium wilt resistance so will try growing one in the greenhouse border where other varieties do very poorly. If it does well, I will try grafting onto it in 2022.
Also in Beth Alpha cucumber. Never grown before but seems a popular variety on this site.
