The pigeons have been tugging at my onions and shallots
It looks ugly - but I just had to cover some of them up to protect them until they can get their little roots secure into the ground - so it's only temporary
The earlies we planted are tucked in safely, and the fruit bushes behind them have all greened up.
I have planted Romana on this spare piece of ground in the fruit cage
Patrick had dug out the weeds at the top and the rest of the area I had covered over for two years
So I ran the rotorvator over it to loosen it up and then dug trenches and added lots of well rotted manure
Romano was planted in the fruit area and in here
Last year in here I grew sunflowers along the fence,
Courgettes, and squash. Climbing beans and green manured any gaps
On the right I am still using up leeks and parsnips
I dug over this bed which held the pumpkins so it's really rich with manure - and planted one of my favourite main crop potatoes - Cara - which we are still eating now at home.
We hope to return tomorrow to mow the lawns and paths, and I have some little broad bean plants ready to go out too.
