The seed sowing that is – a bit later than planned – due to the weather and ‘stuff’ occupying our time, but I have started sowing seeds. This year I am just going to keep a record on a page on the blog of what we do, rather than detail it every week.
We are working hard to dig new vegetable beds in the garden, the plan is to move as much as possible out of the fields and into the garden – thus we should have more grazing for the sheep and less lawn to cut. It is a nice theory anyway. This has meant the digging up of lots of bushes, some transplanting and the poor old rhubarb and loganberry got moved once again.( the fourth time since we moved here), but needs must. I don’t think we have room for everything we need to grow, but it might be possible to double up some areas – grow squashes in the pig run (no pigs this year) and have summer crops in the field veg patch, and only let the sheep in there during the winter months. It will evolve.
Nice to get out there and sort out the propagators and start sowing again, The seasons are turning as they should.
