Weather frustrations

Published on April 28, 2012, by in Diary.

The past two weeks have been very frustrating. It has rained nearly non-stop, the ground has been too wet to work on and, alas, the weeds have gone mad!

We’ve continued to harvest the purple sprouting broccoli which has been fantastic. It’s now going to seed, so only a few more crops left. The asparagus is still cropping and is delicious. I have a crop of chard, but am not sure what to do with it. We’re continuing to eat the lovely leeks left by Bob and Jenny.

New strawberries planted

Published on April 15, 2012, by in Diary.

I managed to clear, prepare and plant up the bed in two hours. The new runners are now enjoying a sunny and fertile spot. Fingers crossed for a bountiful harvest!

Grandma Jill, Grandpa Keith and Hannah managed to deadhead a lot of the daffs – another good job done.
