    Just an over view. Oddly enough nothing much is happening. Oh look, I still have lots of sprouts

    Default January

    Another estate agentís camera angle, ignoring 3-4 days worth of weeding still to do behind me

    Ground is now levelled, ready to install a second compost bin next to the first.

    January
    The whole garden looks much more bare than usual as most of the brassicas and all of the leeks, parsnips and beetroot are at the allotment.
    (My allotment photos are on my allotment thread)

    Nothing much happening near the hotbin, strawberries in the planter on the seat really need replanting or replacing this year.

    2019 Calendar-002.jpg

    All looking very bare. I will be pruning the white currant soon and possibly the apple, but leaving the apricot in the bucket strictly alone.

    2019 Calendar-003.jpg

    Fuchsias and begonias in the growhouse along with a few cauliflower seedlings. Carrots and brokali under the netting.

    2019 Calendar-004.jpg

    Strawberries on the shelving and buckets of used compost elsewhere. The greenery on the bucket on the right is self sown mizuna and pak choi.

    2019 Calendar-005.jpg

    Strawberries and herbs on the path. Kale and spring cabbage under the net. I have taken the nets off the calabrese as they seemed to be encouraging aphids and slugs. Florence fennel in the green pot.

    Not too much growing at the moment - beetroot and parsnips dormant ripe for picking, asparagus in bed asleep, some brassicas and leeks, a bed of garlic (pictured) and a similar one of autumn planted onions.
