25th May – 31st May 2009
The last week of May and half term of school holidays…. weather fine and sunny most of the week… we took a bike ride to Forest of Dean …
My second crops of Board Beans doing well, they have gained height and width and lots of baby beans….
At last I have planted in my six Brussels Sprouts plants (last year I have 4 successful plants)….. before I have dug in lots of manures and firming the ground, after the planting I have covered with leaves mould and nettings….. now just wait…..
The Front View
The front row is very cottage style, lots of different variety of plants there… Garlic, Spring Onion, Salisfy, chives, Rhubarbs, Sweet Peas, Dahlia , Lovage, Horseradish, Tansy, Shoo Fly, Gladiolus, Lemon Balm…. and I thoughts they are weeds and nearly kill them all and just in time to save all these Chard and Spinach… all in this tiny front row…..
My first new potato at last on my dinner plate, they are the first early one, those planted in the first of April, prefer the right size, not too big, skin can rub off… 5 minutes in the boiling water, the taste is heavenly sweet…. Besides potato, there are lots ready to pick… Board beans, Spring Onion, Lettuce… my first sweet pea too….
