Last week was hard. Between the two of us we managed to accomplish a lot. D fixed the greenhouse (not shown) that had all its panels blown out. It used to be glass, but much of the glass has smashed over the years from bad weather. Every year we salvage what we can and patch it up. I am pleased to say it is ready for sowing seeds.
While D got on with the greenhouse, I got on with digging the soil. As you can see I did so much, but there is still so much to do, but I wanted to share some progress and growth - so please indulge me.
This is our plum tree, below it strawberries and rhubarb.
The blossom from the neighbours pear tree has covered my freshly dug ground like white confetti. If you look close, next to the fence - you may see our potato rows. There are two rows: one is Pentland Javelin and the other - the name escapes me.
The weather is still a bit unpredictable, so I am holding of planting anything outside.
Rhubarb beginning to emerge strongly from the ground.
Pretty pear blossom
Overwintered curly kale. I have harvested the healthy leaves and will dig this up next week, but I decided to leave it in the ground this week as we had some big bees about and I wanted them to enjoy the yellow flowers.
Finally, this is the last of the rainbow chard, harvested at the weekend,, cooked and in my belly.
I am sharing this with Harvest Monday hosted by Dave at Happy Acres Blog, along with the curly kale. The next time I join in will be with herbs and some lettuce cuttings, better than nothing I suppose!
