We had a row of All Season Romaine Mixed Lettuce (planted 26/08/13, seed from The Cooks Garden) up in the High Garden that I planted in the middle of other salad vegetables, it was the only row left, I had two chooses, either compost them, or to lift the row of plants and plant them into a large pot or two and keep them growing under glass, this is what I have done, I really do not know if it is going to work but I want to keep picking from the plants so it is worth a try, I will keep you up to date with how they keep going, nothing should stop the digging……..



Bonne année

This New Year was not a year where I woke and could not wait to get out in the garden, it was more how the hell am I going to be able to cope if this rain and wind are here for the month like they said it would, I am pleased to say that things have got a lot better this past week, and we may even get a frost tonight, a good sign, it means that the sky is clear which means it is not raining, being on nursery duty this weekend I have covered the double frames as a novel thing to do, not to have to tie them down….and the digging goes on up in the vegetable garden. Well a very good growing year to you all, the first day of the year started with marzipan, the way I want it to keep going, sweet and delightful.
