Joe and Greg will have to find a new place to play hide and seek….
…because the leeks are about to go to seed, like this one 😦
with a flower head about to open up. They’ll all have to be pulled up this weekend.
Hmm, I wonder if you can freeze leeks….?
Well, that will free up a lot of space to plant climbing beans and sugar snap peas so it’s not a disaster.
“I did so pull this up by myself !” Greg looks sceptical.
And these 🙂 I planted these last year you know, nearly all by myself. Me last year…..
We could play hide and seek in this field .. the oil seed rape is really high now.
I’m not so sure about all these bees though…
Have you seen the broad beans are popping up ?
The first sowing of beans was all eaten by a very well-fed family of voles so these are going to be a bit late this year and will start their lives under netting 🙂
And the Duke of York potatoes are peeping through after just a week. It will be a while before we can dig them up but that was definitely Cam’s favourite job last year so Joe will have to share that fun in a few months.
Cam last year..
Now home for leek and potato soup, all weekend probably.
Happy Easter Weekend everyone – I hope the sun shines on you and your loved ones x
