Dickies Landmaster Safety Wellingtons Giveaway!


We are well and truly into Autumn now. Most things have been harvest at the allotment, although I'm giving my pumpkin another couple of weeks to get a bit bigger ready for Halloween. There are still things you can plant to grow over the winter months like broccoli, brussels, cabbages, kale, leeks, parsnips and even spuds. There is something really special about digging up freshly grown vegetables to put on your plate Christmas day. 

Dickies have put together a great guide on which vegetables to focus on this Autumn, which vegetables are best grown indoors and which need direct sunlight. It even covers how to avoid bitter tastes in winter vegetables (common with lettuce).



Worth £54.95!



To help you with your winter gardening I have teamed up with Dickies Workwear Store to give my readers the chance to win a fabulous pair of wellies, available in a choice of three colors. All you have to do is follow the rafflecopter instructions below.

*Open to UK residents only.

  4. I would like to try growing a few different varieties of cabbage and other greens - as a child I grew loads and it is nice on cold winter days to have fresh-from-the-garden vegetables - somehow they make me feel warmer and healthier. For them same reason I'd like to grow more root vegetables too, like parsnips, turnips, carrots swede etc for stews, casseroles and soups, with herby dumplings and fresh crusty bread, mmmmm.
