Those naughty hens had been sneaking into the veg patch and making a nuisance of themselves, so they are now banished behind some rather attractive (not) security mesh which John has fastened to the existing fence. One disadvantage is that I can no longer take my usual photograph to compare the garden's progress with previous posts. Oh well - her are some different views for a change.
The bean and pea bed in the foreground and the sweetcorn and carrot beds in front. Garlic, shallots and salads can be seen at the 11 0/clock position, and right in the very front, just seen (as they say in magazines) is one of the two brassica beds - well I like a lot of kale and purple sprouting broccoli :)
Here you can see the brassica beds - one with some netting draped over it - I have made it more secure and plugged the gaps now, and the very bottom bed will have leeks planted out - you can see the plug tray sitting waiting. Three types of leeks, which will hopefully keep us going from late summer until next May. I have not been very good at keeping the seeds I have planted list up to date, but I am sure the leeks are on that.
The yellow pots contain blueberry bushes, and we generally have a good long crop from them, but only really enough to pick and eat straight off the plant. Will look at increasing these over the next year or so.
So - very very busy - hope you are all enjoying the rush.
