How much to grow

Figures are a guideline. Obviously planting will depend on individual tastes and family requirements (Nope, still can’t make me eat or grow Brussels Sprouts 😛 )

NOTE:  Do not plant everything at once!  Succession planting will ensure you are not inundated with massive amounts of a single crop and that you always have crops.

Refer to individual planting guides and the Month by Month Calendar for correct planting times.
