Sown/Planted in March
2017 Seed & Plant List
Loved the video---the birds make it so relaxing. I can't wait to get back into the garden. Unfortunately, where I'm at that will be at least 3 more months.Carrots certainly can do the "Twist"--haha. I don't thin either --what a tedious job.
It is lovely to hear the birds, Sue.Three more months - wow - we reckon on March being the real start of the gardening year,
You've been busy, I'm surprised you found time for harvesting but just look what you'd be missing out on. I don't like wellies but those welly shoes are a good alternative.
I am really glad I bought the welly shoes, Jo
My garden would be as soggy as your plot were it not all tall planter boxes, we've been getting a hopefully drought busting series of storms this month. Loved the video, it was so much fun to watch you pull up those big clumps of carrots! It seems that we are competing for who can cover more of the garden with mesh, but the funny thing is that the Brussels sprouts are one of the few things I don't have to protect from the birds.
Soon we will need to cover the entire plot what with new pests emerging every year. We probably need a large biome - we could also control the weather then, Michelle. Wood pigeons devastate anything green here
That's a good harvest Sue....You know I think I may have some carrots and beet in the ground...I will have to go check. I do like your wellie shoes....I have a pair of ankle wellies which are my favourite attire when it is a little drier or I am just going to harvest!!
You'll have to get digging and find them, Tanya
You have some wonderful dark soil, the result of good soil management I would guess. An impressive yield, your rubarb is way ahead of ours, have you had it covered?
It's an early variety of rhubarb, Broan - Timperley Early. It hasn't been covered. Rhubarb is shooting in the fields by us too which the growers are probably not totally happy with. The growers complain is winter is too mild!
I too have welly shoes, and I too hate wellies, they are always so cumbersome and cold! Btw...what tiny feet you have my dear!!!I love those friendly carrots...and your harvest. I also really enjoyed the video of Martyn harvesting the crops and hearing the birdsong on the plot....gosh, just look at that rhubarb already!!! I am hankering after a sprout now....freshly picked mind!xxx
My feet are size 5 Dina so not so small although maybe set against Martyn's size 10. Did you notice the change pof harvester for the sprouts and beetroot?
Those sprouts look great, much better than my rather miniscule specimens. I think I packed them in a bit tight last year - I'll give them a bit more room to grow when I plant them out next.
The sprouts have grown quite a lot since Christmas, Darren but the plants themselves are quite small. We used to struggle with sprouts until we started growing a clib- root resistant variety
Wow - that is muddy. I'm surprised with all that rain you didn't have any rotting. And those are some huge sprouts!
Some of the carrots had split, Margaret but no rotting.
That's good harvest from the mud! None rotted? that's good! Such a memorable video! ;)
I'm glad that you enjoyed the video, Malar
