This Week in the Garden…

Yet another bummer of a harvest this week, but things are slowly turning around. At least we had no storms or nasty frosts, so the plants that did not die or break last time we had them, are slowly starting to take off again.

Most of the greens (above), got put in our dinner for tonight, but I did manage to get the Collards into the freezer, along with the Sprouting Broccoli and Cauliflower.

1 bunch Giant Chioggia (Chicory)
2 handfuls of Sprouting Broccoli and Cauliflower
1 bunch Collard Greens
2 bunches Mustard Greens – Purple and Green
1 handful of Blue Shelling Peas
1 banana boxful of Red & Brown Onions – drying in the laundry
4 Coriander plants in seed – drying in front of the fire

The gardens are growing good again at last – well the autumn/winter plants are anyway!

Collards, Cauliflower, & more Brussel Sprouts – I now have 3 successive plantings (both purple & green):

The Blue Shelling Peas are still flowering really well, even though they got smashed in all the storms:

Baby Cabbages and Leeks growing, and some Celery I found buried in grass in the ground garden!

The first round of Brussel Sprouts are staring to bud up – it is very exciting as I have not grown them before!

Once again, whatever you grow or wherever you are, enjoy your garden or gardening. Peace, Suz X

One thought on “This Week in the Garden…

  1. We only put the sprouts a weekend or two ago, I think we might have left it too late but there’s been so many frosts they would have died otherwise. We have got masses of rhubarb ready to harvest though – it’s very good with custard:)
