…and other goings on.
My plot this winter is looking very respectable thanks mainly to the leeks, parsnips, chard and cabbage. Brussel Sprouts look tall but a bit sparse in the brussels department but still plenty for dinner. I mean we are not entering any beauty competitions are we? Just as well as the parsnips have man-i-fested(see what I did there) much hilarity. I needn’t say any more but it’s still fun to laugh at a suggestively rude food.
The sweetest thing
On the last day of October I harvested the sweet potatoes that I grew in a large pot in the green house. It was quite a sight seeing the vine develop but after all the effort only a few shapes imerged. The UK climate is just to chilly for them but mazingly satisfying to unearth them.
And sow on
As always a little late I got to sow some broad beans. Not expecting much, but they still surprised my by germinating. Its so worth it, and they WILL grow so just do it!
The night before Christmas
The week before and I got my garlic in too. Gold star for me!
What in the hell are Wilkos and other garden centres doing by selling painted succulents? I only hope it doesn’t harm the plant apart from looking ghastly. EPIC FAIL
So don’t buy these and I’ll see you later,
