Not posted for a while, just catching up on everyone's postings.
Like the little pond, I have two frogs on the plot, one is currently living under black plastic sheeting.
I've been trying to get some winter onions, shallots and garlic to plant out in September/October. Not found any at a reasonable price though.
Went to Southport Flower Show on Friday. Checked out the competion vegs. The giant veg section was truely inspiring and way out of my league but some of the other classes looked achievable for next yr...I grow enough toms to find six the same size and currants to find enough bunches which are uniform in size
Spent most of the afternoon at the plot on Sunday. Got lots done and took home a huge bounty of veg and flowers. Freezer is now full so I'm venturing onto making jams, chutney's, relishes, cordials, drying and storing fresh...anything which does not need to be frozen.
Had bulb fennel for the first time with Sunday Roast.
