SO THE SNOW IS CLEARING AND THE SUN IS SHINING AGAIN

Mis à jour : 7 sept 2018

Somehow the winter seems to have rushed past - so fast in fact that I have not had time to update this site!

Apologies.

The garden is pretty well cleared and rotavated over the winter. The compost has been spread and we are waiting for dry weather to work it into the soil a few weeks before the spring planting begins. Soon the broccoli sprouts will begin to appear and we look forward to enjoying this early spring bonanza, quickly cooked and eaten as an appetizer with lemon juice, olive oil and soy dressing.

Lovely. 


Here you can see the trench we dug for the runner bean bed over Christmas - nice job after too much eating!











Next is the 12 month old compost heap, ready for spreading after the top and front have been cut away onto next years compost!


And below you see the winter garden (on a beautiful evening) after the compost has been spread.
