    Such a beautiful afternoon- cold but sunny.
    Spent just over an hour on the plot and got all my red onions in.
    The crows (or are they rooks?) were making one hell of a row up on the cliff tops and two jays had a major row in the poplar tree on the river.
    Was going to take a photo but by the time i got back to the house and took my muddy boots off felt more like a cup of tea than walking back down .....anyone interested can look at the photo earlier of the yellow onions plot - ...

So what's left growing....well there's psb, spring and red cabbage in one bed, then there are leeks at various stages of development, parsnips, ruby chard , kale and winter cabbage.

    That will be the tomato's.

    I think we have had the best part of 300lb of the damn things!

    Butternut squashes have done very well and we will grow them again next year along with the melons which were very tasty.

    We will have to make sure the sweetcorn is fox proofed next year as out of 64 plants we only managed to eat 5 cobs before foxy loxy ate them all in one sitting

    Still getting beans but leaving them for seed
