This is our whole garden haul for a day. Pretty dismal isn’t it. I’ve missed a few Garden Share Collective posts, and well, so has our garden. Before Christmas I just couldn’t muster the motivation to plant, weed, turn soil or just be in the garden. I suppose my focus was elsewhere.
But thankfully, that focus seems to be back. There’s not a whole lot on the cards but we have managed to get some seeds in the ground. Our focus has shifted from planting everything that we could get our hands on, to only planting things that we know will get eaten. For example, we can buy one or two parsnips here or there but we really don’t need a whole bucket load of them, we just don’t eat them.
Our tomatoes are slowly ripening, which is so lovely. The best treat in the world is a sun, warmed cherry tomato. We’ve been very lucky to have our tomato supply supplemented by my parent’s over producing tomato plants.
We’re having a go at planting by the lunar calendar, so over the next few days we’ll be planting broccoli, broad beans and peas.
