A day bank holiday weekend in the vegetable garden 🙂
The house is destroyed but I’m finally on top of everything in the veg patch. It wont last long but feels good for now.
It might look bare but in the ground outside we have red & white onions, early & main crop spuds, parsnips, carrots, beetroot, chard, broad beans & mangetout, celeriac & swede, asparagus & scarlet kale and early purple sprouting broccoli. We also have a bed of strawberries that has had an overhaul, rhubarb and lots of flower and herb seeds planted for the bees.
Now might be a good time to mention the leatherjackets. Has anyone else noticed the zillions of these wriggly little root eaters in their soil? They’ve already eaten one of my kale seedlings! I’m starting to see them in my sleep I’ve picked out so many, which doesn’t bode well for a happy late summer as I have a crane fly phobia 🙁
How was your bank holiday weekend? Did you get to spend some time in the garden?
