Summer Seed Sowing

Sow swedes from early June until mid July for harvest in November/December - they will also store well in a cool place until well after Christmas. Excellent as an addition to winter vegetable soups (including the traditional Welsh cawl), roasted around the joint, or mashed with loads of butter and some ground black pepper.
