As usual we enter Winter with a reasonable selection of vegs. The Sprouts await patiently for Christmas, but otherwise we have Curly Kale, Swiss Chard, Carrots, Cavello Nero, Beetroot, and some rather miserable looking Leeks.
Tis the season when, if I don't pay attention, Haddock's can become completely over-run with weeds. So, where there are no longer crops (and if I have the time), I dig and leave fallow.
The vines are pruned, and I have put in a short row of Red Onions. In storage we have a mountain of Butternut Squashes, more Red Onions, and a variety of Apples. My glut of Tomatoes, Aubergines, and Courgettes, is all carefully bottled and stacked away.
The large bluey-green plants, centre above, are Purple Sprouting Broccoli which will begin to sprout in late March, and the three hens in the background, top picture, are still, for the moment, laying three eggs a day!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I don't think we'll be going hungry this winter.
