With this wonderful 20 degrees C weather, I've been able to start planning what I'll be doing up at Haddock's this year. I've now pulled up the last of the Kale plants, the few remaining Swiss Chard plants, the last of the carrots, and the empty Brussels Sprout stems; the horses have been in heaven. All that remains are some very puny Leeks, and my Purple Sprouting Brocolli.
I dug over where the old plants were, and let the hens out for a special worm-eating festival. I shall rotovate where possible in the afternoon.
And this is the end result; not the neatest potager, but it'll do until I sow or plant anything; at which time I'll do it all again. The two black upturned pots hide a couple of Rhubarb crowns. Forcing them in this way provides the very best tender stems; but do make sure your pots are a good 60 cms tall (or more).
