Well winter in the garden is certainly different to summer in the garden......the crops are very very slow...there's a bit going on underground I hope. The onion, beetroots, garlic and leeks seem to be going along nicely...if a tad slow.....I miss the glorious display of goodies that was in the garden last season...this waiting and waiting to see what happening is a not as much fun...also some little bugs are getting into the broccoli, cabbage and spinach...making a meal of most of it...have spread out scratchy straw and thrown around some diatomaceous earth...which is ground up fossils so fine they cut the ecoskeleton of insects etc...so they tell me anyway..things have improved slightly but I didn't have any bugs at all in the summer garden beds, so not sure where they have popped up from....hurry up Spring....
|Beetroots look like they are going OK..|
|Onions ...hopefully something going on under there.......|
|On a brighter note, bulbs from last year have popped up !!|
|Garlic and leeks look okay...but ssooooo slow ...|
