Growing all year round? Let's have a go...a new weekly task.
It's been on my mind that I've planned and planned for all of the bounties we are harvesting now and what is still to come through the summer, but I've not done quite as much for Autumn and Winter.
So I've decided to put these thoughts into action and for the last couple of weeks I've been sowing more things. I plan on sowing something new weekly for the next few weeks, which I'll share with you along with their progress.
Lettuce, winter leeks, winter cabbage, basil (red and green), chamomile as I'm curious to see if you can grow them in winter (for gifts), pak choi, autumn cauliflower (not had 1 yet this year!!!), beetroots and spring onion.
Now for a confession, my greenhouse is a tip!
I must get in this weekend and give it a tidy out. I don't have a photo of the back section, which is just as well as all the pots have fallen over and water's dripped through from watering, there's boxes with boxes and who knows what else!
So this weekend I promise I will tidy out my greenhouse! I'm in there ALL the time and I work happily in there, people actually come to visit me in there like Grace is below. So I need to give it the attention it deserves, after all, this is where it all starts!
