A close up of my favourite lettuce 'Freckles' - one of the few things we have planted in our new garden. There is quite a lot of space, but so different from our garden on the mainland. All the ground is at the front and to one side of the plot - facing south west - which is good for the sun, but not for the full frontal south-westerly gales we have been assured we will see in the winter.
Somewhere too there are blackcurrants and gooseberries in there, so they will be rescued, and the compost bin is already well established. It is a work in progress, as all gardens are. And we have 2.5 acres of croftland to work too!
All in good time - I will post pictures of that project soon. In the meantime, we are back down on the Mainland for about a month to see Kenneth safely moved into his first flat (apartment), celebrate Kristine's 21st, visit Mum, who is failing quite a bit, and catch up with everyone and everything else, including the garden here.
