Sunday was spent reclaiming my garden. About time. It reclaimed a bit of my sanity too.
Hurrah! My garden is producing in colour co-ordinated style! 18 beets and 7.5kg of potatoes later and I finally have produce to trade with Dad for eggs. I now need to find a good beetroot pickle recipe. Spinach and parsely are also doing really well, but my citrus is leafless and flowerless (and needless to say fruitless). Lemon, Lime and Mandarin plants all looking like twigs. There are timy new shoots, plenty of sun and artful wind breaks but am I doing something wrong? Might have been the frost . . .
Apples, Plums and pears are all on their way, I will be Jamming in no time. fingers crossed!
