Sow and go
Sowing cauliflower, endive, cress, red cabbage, spinach, turnips and radishes will add to your vegetable platters while Chinese cabbage and Chinese Kale make great autumn salads and stir-fries.
Early potatoes can be dug up and dried for next year’s seeding while herbs are there for the gathering. Protect your fruit as best you can from wasps, birds, earwigs, slugs and snails.
