Started lifting the potatatoes in the greenhouse yesterday. Plenty to eat this week.
Planting out rocket, Mizuna and Pak choi in the gaps with other longer maturing brassica crops and a yacon.
Starting to clear out some broadbeans at the moment ,we got a very good crop this year when undersown with a green manure. The green manure seemed to stop the broadbeans from blowing over and staking wasnt needed. Here I’m using a board to avoid walking on the beds.
The bed now ready for sowing or transplanting. The rotation says brassicas but Im thinking squash mmm.
Bright Lights leaf beet for a bit of colour and gap filling.
The first strawberry of the year at home.
Beautiful flowers on the Brandwine Tomatos..
The support string for the tomatoes needed replacing with canes as the natural fibers seemed to rot at ground level. Lesson learned. The beetroot is doing well.
The Borage seems to have shot up recently with all the rain.
Borage in the tunnel
We opened up this bed on Tueday to starting planting up. So easy to manage when its mulched and covered.
Planting up the square foot demo area. Parsley, Marjoram, turnip , etc. Might chance a few climbing french beans at the back.
Some climbing french beans awaiting planting in the tunnel. 4 planted around a 10 foot bamboo cane @300x 600 c-c
Straw to keep the berries of the ground. Need a few bales.
