Our 1st harvest dinner of 2021

Our peas have survived, I think Jo's great idea of using Teasels to stop birds getting at them worked.
I planted the last of the potatoes Maris Piper, in 3 rows slightly closer together, but each seed spud was 15" apart, so plenty of space to grow. 
Stockbridge Arrow rhubarb, looking ready, short stalks, but that means they will be super sweet.
Bees have been busy visiting the Black Currants, so we netted the cage, now we should get a good harvest, not the birds!
Our 1st harvest of Asparagus, we will have these in a rissoto for dinner tonight.
1st harvest of rhubarb, a crumble to have after that yummy rissoto.

It was so sweet too.

I put in a solar powered waterfall pump, to aerate the pond, watch the video below.

So a great few days and the weather has been dry and sunny, we do need rain though, all the rain barrels are empty and the soil is turning to dust!

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo.

  1. I love the teasel idea for the peas. Might have to try that when we transfer our peas into the ground.
