Research for a novel. Info needed......
I'm writing a novel set in Ireland 1940. I'm not a gardener so I'm lost here and don't want to make a basic mistake that would make the story seem wrong. The story is set over one year. The end of the story will mention a garden coming good. Simple things like potatoes, cabbage, apples and things that an inexperienced gardener in the story could manage. Which month(S)would these simple fruit and vegetables be planted and which month would they be ready to harvest. How would slugs and pests have been tackled in the 1940's?
Any help greatly appreciate.
