Thanks everyone. The article in the Guardian regarding food shortages yesterday spurred me into action!

Agreed. That has had me reviewing my winter veg options.
The garden is small and I don't have space for the traditional winter options to grow in summer.
But a walk around the garden shows plenty of self seeded rocket and lambs lettuce, American cress, Jerusalem artichokes and a little kale.
I have restarted doing pea shoots on the windowsill and think we will have at least some fresh green to add interest to the stores come January

Small space gardening has come of age these last few years. My garden is enormous, but as I get older I don’t want the work. My veg growing has now shrunk to a lot smaller area containing two square foot beds, two raised beds and four sawn- off fifty gallon barrels in which I grow climbing beans. The space left over that is no longer cultivated, I have paved over. No work!
With the above, I can grow as much as we need ( two of us). I don’t bother with brassicas and late spuds, too much work and too much space.
