hi im also thinking of growing my own veg im thinking i need a poly tunnel or should i just leave them to the elements or does it depend on the type of veg



depends on the veg to some extent. summer veg will crop slightly earlier in a tunnel, and might be more 'tender' but things like cabbages,sprouts & parsnips, typical winter veg would be better outside. having said all that its only what i have read over the years. there are sure to be people on GoY that do it for real. Oh and welcome to GoY.
