Still producing but the plants are looking sad and nearing the end
Waiting for the chilli peppers to redden, they are frozen whole as we harvest
Last of the potatoes, we have more we dug up in the week.
Joe started clearing the top veggie garden
Burning the old raised beds that rotted
Signs of autumn as the last of the poplar leaves hang on.
We are self sufficient in firewood, the neighbouring farmer loaned us his tractor and log splitter so Joe could get the last rounds split and stacked in the shed.
Need a chestnut tree, we could have been roasting some!
At least two years worth of wood in the shed
The seeds planted last month are growing but their growth is being thwarted by the cats!
Lettuce seedlings shop bought doing well
The leeks are still waiting to go in, they're going in the newly prepared beds in the top veg garden, along with broad beans, carrots, onions etc.
Brassicas, growing well but they've been chomped a bit
And here's how the top garden looks this afternoon.
New beds, rotary hoed and ready for planting. They will have wood edging and the path will be concrete, I defy any weeds to grow in that!
Joe has sourced a never ending supply of horse poop!
We now have to decide which of the new fruit trees will be planted up here and which ones will go in the garden.
Still to do?
I'm afraid that's my efforts for this month, I had news that a long time best friend passed away suddenly this week, so I have been out of sorts. I hope to be back on track by next month.
Be safe and be well xx
