I am well into my autumn sowing now. Have sowed 8 different salads in the polytunnel, carrots and Feltham First pea, outside have sowed onion seed. At the end of the month I will put in broad beans, onion and garlic sets. I have just bought two great books, The Winter Harvest handbook by Eliot Coleman and Small Scale grain raising by Gene Logsdon both American books I am afraid but still full of good relevant information. last night we went to a Food Day at old hall community, we traded some seeds for apples watched some interesting films from the transition group at Wivenhoe which were powered by two bicycles (I took my turn peddling!) and had a delicious meal provided by the community from the food grown on site.
