I like to have pumpkin seeds in muesli etc so thought I'd try kakai pumpkins for seed.

The result is that from the one plant I had there were three pumpkins and the total seeds they've yielded amount to 5oz or 140g. Not a huge haul and I'm not sure that I'd go out of my way to repeat the experiment except that I might as well use the remaining seeds in the packet. They were very little trouble and might last about a month for breakfast.

I usually keep my plots in very good order, but this season things were often neglected due to health problems.  I'm a lot better if not yet 100%. I won't bore you with details.

But my strawberry bed, while weed free has a huge amount of dead and dieing leaves and foliage swamping the green growth. I would normally clean up after fruiting was over. Is it too late now? Last night was the first really sharp frost. 

I am reasonably knowledgeable on some topics, but this is a blind spot.  I don't want to weaken the plants unduly. Would a good clean up in early spring be better. 

Over to you strawberry experts!

As I lack the space at home to start things off in modules, I grow everything from seed on the allotment.  That said, does anyone have success growing leeks without transplanting them at all...or is that just wishful thinking and that at the very least they need a seed bed.  Thanks for all the comments.
