Thought I would put a couple of photos of the vegetable garden as it stands today. plenty of weeds to come out from the rows of carrots, parsnips, swede, beets. Garlic doing very well, have taken the scapes off. Rhubarb going mad (like me)Spuds now had second earthing up on four rows, tomorrow will do the last couple of rows.

re: Vegetable patch

Ernie, it is about 50 X 50 feet of actual crop with the Gooseberries and Blackcurrants along the East (right hand) side. Raspberries and more Blackcurrants are in another patch with a few fruit trees.
The spuds take up about 200 row feet, earthing them up is not a job I look forward to but has now been done twice.
Most of the seeds are now through though some are taking their time. Need some rain quite badly but forecast is for storms and rain over next couple of days.
Weeding gets to be a chore especially when the cats have used the soil for a litter tray, sneaky devils always cover it over so I usually find it with my knee.
It all means we eat fresh vegetables and are still eating last years onions. Think I may have grown too much garlic, nine different varieties of Hardnecks to see which do best in our heavy soil.
But keeps me sort of fit and a nice break from Stamping.

Geez Vic.

Most definitely more a "farm" than a "cabbage patch"

Beautiful.

Dave.

re: Vegetable patch

Dave, thank you, it takes a bit of work but the proof is in the eating. Nowt like vegetables from garden to plate in quick order.
