Tuesday 29th September 2015 – Continuing with the tidying up.

It’s a little easier to work through various beds now that certain vegetables are ready to come up. I turned over a bed where the Onion, Garlic and Carrots were growing. My Onions started off brilliantly, but then went a bit crap. I’ve not had anything decent from them at all this year. Why this is I don’t know, but I did exactly the same as I usually do, so I guess it’s just one of those things. Still other things have done brilliantly, so I’m not going to complain. I finished turing over and weeding the bed that I’d started yesterday, and then I manured it with 2 barrow loads. I just put the manure on the top of the soil and over the winter the worms will take it down and do all the hard work for me. Once Spring comes I’ll just give it a quick turn over again before sowing. I then moved onto the next bed where some more Rhubarb grows. I’ve now harvested the last of this and will stew it up with some ginger. This bed is quite large but I still managed to get a substantial amount dug and weeded so that was good. Just before I left I went and harvested some more Kale for the chickens. I forgot to bring them anything home yesterday and they were a bit miffed. They love Kale, so hopefully they’ll forgive my forgetfulness from yesterday.

That's 1 bed down, but lots more to go.
