Front mini bed
This is only a small patch at the front of the plot next to the shed, the Jerusalem Artichoke has been planted here since the first year when I took over the plot. I left some tubers every time when I harvested them at the end of October. Again this year they are thriving well……. planted a few Chives here too….
This square patch has cramped in with Spring Onions, Garlic, Rhubarb, Sweet Peas, Lovage, Tansy, Lemon Balm, Gladioli, Feverfew and Chives….
This L shape bed has planted in Beetroot, Garlic, Lettuces, Turnip, Parsnip, Choy Shum and Pak Choy. While I was weeding found an raw egg hidden inside the leafy plants, guessed a fox’s work…… My first time of Choy Shum are doing well here….
