The variety I have is called Bocking and is apparently strile - which should prevent it from spreading too rapidly and swamping my plot.
I love the idea of the various kind of green manure. It is a great way for me to make good use of the shadiest part of my plot. Rather than struggling to grow something that will not be happy there, I can grow something that is both happy, productive and of great use to the rest of the plot.
The weather has turned colder again, but it is still milder than the last two winters.
February is nearly here, another cold month, but the days at least are getting longer. It will be no time at all now until the little greenhouse will be stuffed full of young plants.
