Cleaned out the dead leaves and stems from my strawberry plants. New ones to be planted when the water subsides. No digging done yet as the ground is saturated. The only thing growing is Rhubarb and MOSS!


Garlic advice please

Lardy maybe it is Thermidore, a french garlic. I planted it 2 years ago. Good crop.

Too wet to do any digging but put rotting onions in compost heap. Rhubarb still lying around since before xmas, can't replant with all the rain.

21st is the shortest day in the year.

Our met service here in Ireland say forecasting beyond a week is pure guess work, and I agree.
