OK it’s been wet and windy for god knows how long. I’ve sown a few seeds at home although all the seedlings over winter died as the plastic greenhouse blew over.Here are a few recent photos.The daffs are out although they look down after being battered by wind and rain.The potatoes I put in old compost in about Oct are up! If we get some heavy frosts they may not survive though!I threw the unsplit garlic from last June under a wheelbarrow, they have all sprouted. I’ll use the tops for stir fry.The plots are badly waterlogged, here is my friends path.That’s it for now. Be good and pray for some dry days!
Over the past month I’ve been trying out my own way of microgreens, some a success and others not.
Dried Marrowfat Peas… Soak them overnight then rinse and just keep them damp, within a few days they sprout, you can then pile them into compost and cover. Here is my first trial pot. Not bad and they taste great.
Cress – put about 1cm of compost in a tray, sprinkle lots of cress seeds, flatten them in then spray the water. You can cover with something for two days, they will look yellow, then leave them in daylight. Great taste, much hotter than shop cress. More peas on the go at the front!
This is the time of year to wood chip the paths or is it? There are numerous piles on the site but none of the chips are big enough for paths and all quite wet and heavy so today I managed about 15 barrows of very broken down chips and placed them on the beds with either bulbs or berries growing.
Below are two photos and that’s it for now. I wish you all a Happy New year 🎊
