Flowers And Philosophy
I have cleared four of the raised beds.Two have crops still growing in them (Broccoli Waltham, and Cabbage Primo 2).The Snapdragons and Yellow flowers are growing in one bed.Two need clearing ready for the winter green manure.The area between the beds needs digging over and covering with black tarpaulin.
Once I have written this blog post I will be doing Internet shopping for more those items.I am enjoying the few successes of the allotment in 2012.
The failures include no Carrots,Parsnips,French beans, or Japanese Onions germinated in the soil, so there were no crops.
The weeds and grasses have outgrown all the vegetable crops in my absence.Now is a time to regroup and plan for next year.
