I feel a bit like I’m in hibernation with this blog at the moment, but promise to start posting a bit more regularly when things start getting sown in spring.
I have been able to get onto the plot and continue to make the raised beds, even though it is squelchy and very wet. The carpet pathways are slowly being replaced with woven landscape fabric, as the beds are constructed – 6 down, 6 to go!
The rhubarb from the garden has been transplanted into bed 4, along with a bargain £1.99 plant from ESK Warehouse.
The broad beans, garlic and shallots are all growing well and each time I visit, I can’t help but pick a shallot leaf to taste the intense flavour- much to the annoyance of HWDD, who now avoids kissing me hello, when I get home!
