The vegetable Garden
After all the horrendous weather this year, at last it is warm and dry enough to make a start in planting the vegetable garden. We still have lots to do of course but it is marvellous to be able to make a good start.
As you can see from the photos I simply chit them in the usual way ( on a window sill in my case ) and then place them in the containers and top up the containers to bury the shoots. All I have to do now is top them up as they grow, and when they are ready just empty the container into a wheel barrow and eat them. No digging and very little work. This year I’m growing Arran Pilot new potatoes and Desire main crops.
We have also planted out carrots and some garlic thus week. Tomorrow we will be starting off new seeds in the shed.
We have also planted runner beans, leaks, spring onions and salad
