What O! Tickety Boo! Can’t believe I’m watching the last episode of Blandings – the best thing on TV in a long time – simply capital!
Glorious weather for this time of year – have managed to clear all 8 raised annual beds in two days at the end of last week.
Today me & the lovely hubbie cleared 6 of the eight veg beds. Have frozen a mountain of kale (having already fried heaps with bacon, onion and spuds for tea). The lovely hubbie has made a bucket load of parsnip soup. We still have to tackle the jerusalem artichokes and that’ll be last year’s harvest gone – must try harder to fill the “hungry gap”.
Tomorrow, I intend to sow some peas, rocket and lettuce in the tunnel – should have pea shoots & leaves to eat pretty soon.
The weather’s to be good all week – yippee!
If you fancy growing some veg – you should check out the wonderful Nicky Kyle Gardening fantastic advice for growing your own veg – organically of course!
Remember to companion plant – alongside your veg, you need to grow chives, poached egg plants, calendula, foxgloves, nasturtiums – for a number of reasons but mostly to attract beneficial insects. Plus it makes the veg garden look pretty!
The veg garden two years ago with rather too many companion plants!
Last year’s brassica bed in June – full of promise!
Happy Gardening! x
