Quite a busy fortnight. Mainly been harvesting crops, as you can see here plenty of ripe Strawberries. I've repaired an old raised bed by making new sides from reclaimed timber & I found a Hedgehog sleeping in our wildlife corner, I have named him/her Sonic :)
The reason I didn't do my usual weekly Blog was last Sunday we went to BBC Gardeners World Live at the Birmingham N.E.C there was so much to see, Plants, Gardens, Fruit, Flowers, Veg & Monty Don live on stage!
But back to the plot and this week harvesting has been busy, so far (since April) we have picked:
Winston spuds 8lb
Asparagus 1lb 5oz
We have had sunshine almost every day too, just a few light showers.
But it has meant everything has shot up, all the Peas & Beans are climbing, the Parsnips are swelling & need thinning out too!
And the Beetroot is getting big too, so I decided to make another batch of wine from this years crop, there is about 4lb here and as I need 3lb to make a gallon of wine, by the time trimmed & washed, this will be perfect.
I made a few gallons last year and they proved to be very popular so it makes sense to make more.
If you want the recipe let me know & I will send it to you.
Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
