Haddock's. 8am. Wednesday 9th March 2011.

The early morning sun is shining, the sky is clear, and there's plum blossom on the trees. But there's no denying; Haddock's is a total mess! (For anyone who doesn't know; Haddock's is my veg' garden)

I've attempted to rotovate some of the weeds away, but my machine really isn't up to the job (I bought a cheap one).

I'm not intending to plant or sow as yet, but I like to keep things looking as if someone has been paying attention.

However, on the plus side, we are still harvesting Sprouts, Leeks, Kale, Carrots, Spinach, Chard, and Broccoli. As well as having Onions, Potatoes, and Butternuts in storage. Our bottles of Tomato-based preserves are healthy, and we still have plenty of jams, jellies, and pickles. (Oh, and I still have one HUGE cabbage)

The two black blobs (just left of centre) are the Rhubarb forcing pots. Things beneath are stiring; crumbles not far ahead!

  1. cro
    compared to my plots
    it looks lovely!

  2. Oh, spring has sprung in your neck of the woods. Not yet here, but soon!

  3. We have some blossoms showing up here too Cro., and with daylight savings this weekend - Spring is in the air...Yahoo!
    Your veggie garden is amazing, I'm sure it's a lot of work but the rewards..oh the rewards...I can smell that crumble cooking alright!

  4. Our rhubarb is under hooo....

  5. Ell Cro it looks good to me,after our hot hot days all that is left looking like it has any life is our Choko vine and no flowers yet so maybe no pickles this year! O'h well the next thing to do now the weather is cooler is for us to replace our vegie patch with raised beds as that seems to be the way to go these days.

  6. I so look forward to my gardens every year and gather all my catalogs and begin planning in February. Come March I take a walk around them and see the havoc the winter has brought. So much work, so much work and discouragement sets in. Undaunted though, I get hubby to do it.

  7. Well it looks lovely to me, and your store of produce is a whole lot better then mine!

  8. That's a very pretty picture, and it makes me want to go plant something. Looks like spring has entered your neck of the woods.
