Well, as the moat had receded, I finally made my second (I think) visit of 2014 to the plot… in better shape than I hoped, and have managed to haul away further crops of Swede, Leeks, Purple Sprouting, Beetroot, Chard and Sprouts. Honestly thought would be a ground clearance operation only today! Soil moist and workable, and despite sunshine, no sunburn!
Top bed cleared apart from the Elephant Garlic (planted in Nov), and rest of bed planted up with Parsnips (Hollow Crown- yes, I am trying again, trying to beat the grand total of zero harvested last year!!!!), Onions (Red Baron & Centurion) and Peas (Meteor).
