This has been a good week in the garden in general.
I'll try to show it more in pictures than words, if I can manage that; you know I love a ramble!
On Monday I took up the vast majority of the onions and they are now drying on a hessian bag in the cellar store room. don't know the weight until they are dried and then I can compare with last year. I thought I'd planted more this time but not sure....
I did a bit of sowing, too. More carrots alongside the ones that are doing very well, some Basil in the top of the herb loo and extra radishes in a spare planter after I ditched one of my tomato plants.
These are the first sweet peas I have had in the kitchen for the last few days until today as I have just had to throw them away.
On Tuesday I had a good little harvest and it was pure joy to bring this basket of goodies into the house!
Now, I have a Twitter account for the Airbnb room and I follow a few interesting people - can't do with trash, tat or gossip; I'm a very discerning member of this form of social media! Following on from this, see what I did there? I had a chat with a company called Dri-Pak who I think a lot of people have heard of. I've wanted to do some product testing for companies for a while so I asked if they were interested in sending me some items that I could review - and this little lot arrived this week!
I plan on sitting down this weekend to plan how best to do this little project; I've used soda crystals for quite a long time, along with good old fashioned green household soap.
Ok, there we are. I am hoping we may get a shower or two today; the butts are just about empty and I could do with all the main veg patches getting a bit of a soaking.
As ever, I look forward to hearing what everybody gets up to over the weekend.
Bye for now.
