More Brassicas Planted

This patch, where the Onions were, is now partly planted up with Borecole we still have more Leeks to put in yet.

As you can see the flowers are still in full bloom, which is good for the Bees that are still collecting nectar.

This aerial shot is showing most of our plot.

In the foreground is the patch where we had Broccoli and Cauliflowers, which have finished so cleared, weeded and soil turned over ready for next crop, see below.

The white tunnel/cloche you can see alongside the cleared area still has late Carrots under, hopefully root fly free!

Anyway, back to the cleared area, here you can see the new netted cover made from a climbing frame garden construction kit we had for the kids in the 80's, think it was called Quadro. I knew it was a good idea to keep it, also made staging from it for the green house.
We planted more Kale under the netting, mainly for the Chickens, they love it.

So to this weeks harvest:
Potatoes (White & Purple)
Beans: French (Green & Purple) & Runners
Courgettes: Green & Yellow
The Trug shows just today's (Sunday) harvest.

And for those who love
Sunflowers, and there are many, here is one of many on our plot just for you.

We are not going for the tallest Sunflower, this one is only about 6ft tall, but for a full head of seeds for the birds and maybe our Chickens too.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian.
