It's playing up again

Kef we are on a private water supply and the tank is on the fell side at the other side of the valley I have water buts and normally we have no shortages but OH had a new hip in June and was unable to go and check the tank when we had a very dry spell I decided to go myself one hot afternoon while he had a rest I had an idea were it was I knew it was behind a rowan above a big rock unfortunately by the time I had walked to it I could see a numer of rowan but the bracken was so thick and tall I couldnt see the rock  any way I did eventually find it and it was full and lots flowing in but I think the veg had been without for a bit to long, but as every farmer and gardener knows next year will be better

on a wet afternoon recently I was browsing gardening books on kindle I came across Charles Dowdings myths and misconceptions and found it interesting, I then looked at samples of his gardening books and downloaded growing winter veg as I struggle to have enough veg to get us right through.

it may not be for every body but I have used no dig in my raised beds for many years and if your just starting With veg it's worth a look
