Elsewhere in the garden the snowpeas - golden and green - continue to curl up over everything.
Florence fennel has put up loads of frilly hair.
Rainbow chard just keeps giving more no matter how much we eat. I have clumps of it everywhere. The chooks can't get to these up here snug in their apple crates!
We'll be heading away soon on a holiday - my sister is house sitting for us but doesn't do gardening at all so we are just leaving the long low planter (15m x 1m) fallow for now. As the caterpillars and snails totally destroyed the brassica (only leaving one!!) and other greens in there, there isn't much growing, just the odd artichoke, chilli and herbs... it's too cold to plant green manure and I really don't know what to pop in that can go untended. Green manure really would be ideal but we're reached frosty winter now. Any suggestions?
