Other developments in Tim’s garden? Well, funny you should ask….
The first apple buds on the young Spartan (three years old / second year in my garden). This is the best photo I could get:
Then the potatoes, earthed up (still a few to do):Every time I cut the lawn the grass cuttings will go around the potatoes. They make a good mulch, talking of which, it’s very important for runner beans, he’s one just starting its run:Sure, a little slug munched, but it’ll be fine. I think you can see the slug pellets in shot, I’ve tried other techniques but pellets are the only thing that have coped with the demand.
The leeks are starting to be more visible in photo now, still a bit grass like next to the onions:Again, it’s worth saying again, I’m really happy with the wire, it’s protecting against the cat running through and holding the onions up a bit more.
