Another glorious evening in the garden and the sun is shining at the moment at 5.30 pm.

Today we planted our shallot sets out and about 200 plus onions which should be ready by the end of summer and collected before tying into French onion strings to last the winter through.

We also erected out sweet peach frame along the West side of the garden to give a little shade from the totally open area which gets a little too much evening sun; this will also help prevent the ground at this end of the garden from drying out too quickly in our very fine well draining river side silty black soil.


The raspberry stand is well under way now, over the last two years we managed to harvest about a hundred pounds of fruit from this old breed variety.

The sweet pea plantlet's are nearly ready to plant out after hardening off in our top shelf greenhouse with its open front, the peas are an old strain called black night that we collected from someone who threw them in the communal compost are and have a very unique scent and almost blackish colour..

Thanks for looking.
