Back on the range

After almost giving up on the plot due to work, home, health and general mental condition. I have come through to the other side and started again. So far 20 hours spent fighting back the weeds and making the beds. I am cheered on by beautiful weather and the lovely people who still go. My darling better half has helped and provide fantastic picnics on the two full days I have been down there.

Waiting for the sun

So more snow and with it the notion of getting a head start gone out of the window. Never mind at least the spuds are still ok and hopefully that is the last of the really cold weather. Will have to check the seed bed tomorrow and assess the damage!

Two strawberries from last summer

Thought I would post this picture of my two enjoying the lovely strawberries of last summer. I can not wait until it warms up a bit. I think I will pop down this weekend to get a raised bed warmed up and get the seed bed cleared for March

Found this great site run by Phil. He has built loads of really good articles and tips well worth the first while dreaming of growing on these freezing nights!

A gamble on a mild start

I have decided to get my raised bed going early with Garlic, Radishes, and beetroot. It is a bit of a risk but as long as I can protect the seeds/bulbs and cover if needed I think I can get some early crops. Will let you know of success or failure!
