The last couple of weeks have been a bit frustrating on the garden front. The Easter Hols have been busy and apart from watering the seedlings and plants in the greenhouse I haven’t managed to have a good session. We are still harvesting the purple sprouting broccoli which has been amazing. We started eating it around mid Jan! It looks like it’s coming to an end now as it’s a battle to stop it from flowering. Will definitely grow again for next year.
The strawberries in the greenhouse are flowering and I’m wondering if I should pollinate them as no bees have got into the greenhouse. Will have a go today with a small paintbrush.
