Hours at the plot so far 62 1/2.
I went down this evening to have a bonfire as the wind was in the right direction. Whilst it was at its hottest I felt I ought to hang around and watch it so I cut the grass around the shed and generally tidied up the plotholders third of the plot. The parsnips they left in from last year were seeding everywhere....so they got burnt as well. I left it smouldering.....it should be ok.
Here is the promised photo of the onion crop. Once they are strung it doesn't look much, but I am very pleased with them. We are eating the ones that wouldn't string...they are tasty!
Earlier today I sowed the seeds in my Autumn Salad Bar Sq Ft Garden (Bed 2). I did Rocket, Mizuna, Lettuce Clarion, Lettuce Sherwood, Fennel, Chives, Parcel, Parsley, Bush beans Purple Teepee, Bush beans Sonesta, Chard, Turnips, Beetroot Boltardy and Forono, Spinach, carrots Autumn King, peas (for tips...if the mice leave me any!) spring onions Ishikura, and onions (forgotten the name). I covered the bed with fleece to keep the cats from laying all over it.....and watered it copiously.
I also had to fleece the first Sq Ft bed on top of the netting over it as the butterflies were getting through the net! I have sent for a sample of the butterfly net from Harrod Horticultural and will probably order it from them before I grow cabbages again!
All in all a busy day....and now I'm ready to get horizontal!!!!!
