Hooray - British Summer Time has arrived and that makes me feel that summer is on the way. It also means that we'll have more time to deal with the fields and getting things done.
A pretty productive weekend and we got the following into the ground (our rows are 15m long):
- 20 asparagus plants (we are really hoping that these succeed as it would be fantastic to have this on the menu)
- One row of potatoes
- 2 rows of broad beans
- 4 rows of early carrots
- 2 rows of parsnips
I used the seed machine to plant the rows of seed and it did make the job easier than normal. Time will tell if it works though... that's the thing with gardening, it always takes so long to find out what works and what doesn't.
We also saw some green shoots all of the field, very small at the moment. Sadly it's not the wheat but some weeds - AAAARRGGHH! I do think that this is going to be one of the biggest challenges on a field this size. Stay tuned for that one...
The best thing to have after a long day digging has got to be a nice chilled glass of white wine - and that's me - I'm off!
