I know it's the so called British obsession to talk about the weather. But us farmers (smallholders) are dictated to by the weather. The last weeks been dry and I have been busy tending to the veg plot, digging a drain and ploughing and rotovating (neighbour) a field. Here's some pics.
|Mixed area for different vegetables. Carpet is doing a great job smothering grass and weeds. Must trim that box hedge.|
|Orla 'early' seed potatoes and Sturon onions waiting to be planted. I always grow Orla because they come from Scotland and that means they aren't prone to Blight like their Irish cousins. Great taste too!|
|Potato plot ready for planting. Compost area in background. Two raised beds will sown with carrots or what ever we think of. May be even potatoes?|
