The Giant Autumn Leaderboard

fig-1Okay, so it’s got to THAT time in the year. The allotment is far from over for the winter, there are several crops still growing and a couple of new ones still under the ground for next year. But it’s definitely a good time to take stock, so I’ve decided to go through every crop individually and give it a rating.

I’ll be taking you on a virtual walk around the plot, so crops will be listed geographically – that makes sense only to me or anyone who has ever seen my allotment. Hey, call me odd, but it’s the best way to remember crops that are long-gone.

Ratings will go on this page, with links to individual reports. It will be curious to see whether the ticks outweigh the crosses…
