Not a lot has been happening in my garden over the last month. I haven’t done any more planting, not too much wedding, but I am starting to see edible things pop up.
Like the bulbs of the beetroot.
These broccoli are getting huge, surrounding them is parsnips, beetroot, carrots and coriander. Sadly, our brussel sprouts still haven’t got any actual sprouts on them. Maybe I’ll have to admit defeat. My first ever home grown carrots. Last time I planted carrots they all got eaten before this stage! I’m super excited to be able to just grab them out of the ground and put them into our latest kitchen creation! In the past, my coriander has always met the same fate as my carrots. I’m astounded by the quantities and look forward to many a coriander pesto, or coriander and mussels or just adding coriander to absolutely everything! My rhubarb plant is growing back so well! And our first edible winter produce, sugar snap peas, they’re deliciously fresh and crunchy! I’ll be surprised if many make it to the kitchen! Our back garden bed, joins onto the chook pen. The girls are so happy and healthy, providing us 3 eggs a day, they are the perfect addition to the garden. It may look a little mess but this back garden is our perennials bed. The spinach is going crazy, our spring onions, shallots and chives grow on and as things, like the broccoli, start to go to seed, we pull them out and feed them to the chickens.TO DO:
- plant summer seeds – sun flowers, corn, tomatoes
- continue to weed
