Pulling some paris carrot good for stoney soil as they grow near the surface .
More garlic and onions
Kale doing well
A few tokyo turnips ready for the pot and below a false chanterelle growing among the late potatoes
The keyhole bed with it’s volunteer courgettes and tomatoes is now producing. Next year I might try a few beds like this and see what comes up as I was a bit late for a good crop this year.The leeks are also doing well but will need a little topping up as the ducks run riot through the bed.
I,ve cut the tops off the potatoes and will chance leaving some in the ground as I have a light well draining soil. Others I will lift and store.
While out for a wander yesterday collected some yarrow , sweet chestnut and yew berries ( flesh only is edible not seed or any other part of tree)
Yew Berries ( take care!!)
Lastly I have been testing a product for aerating compost it’s especially good for cone style composters where turning is not easy.. Its like an auger and works well. You screw it in a then pull up to mix.They are avaialble through Dolmen designs 087 9263067 email@example.com . Ecologic in Dundrum stock them also.
