A week of constructions in the garden, PDC students, sun, wind and rain – the latter coming down in sheets and more to come….. the garden is loving it after a dry spell.
Another bumper harvest - we are pulling this off the garden every other day for 45 people here at Milkwood
These garlics were put in as green garlic, but were not very successful - however pulling the small bulbs now is going to provide a very tasty additoin for Rose in the kitchen
We are keeping records of everything we harvest and our total so far now exceeds 60kg in total – crops are : Rocket, Mesclun (mixed salad lettuce leaves), Radish, Spring Onion, Bok Choi, Cima di Rapa, Beetroot and Beetroot leaves.
The next salad crop almost ready for harvesting.
Meanwhile the onions that were planted in a previous post are thriving well
and the green border of Jerusalem Artichokes and Comfrey is really coming on - compare this recent picture with one of 2 months ago ...

and out in the potato patch the corn and beans are coming up already - only a week later.
In the garden we have just erected our last growing structure – our Cucumber Cathedral.
Cucumber Cathedral - but without seeds yet, it's ironically just too wet !
the long view of the Cucumber Cathedral
The Bean Banjo - good strong healthy beans growing too
Peas on Pea-Sticks and climbing frame - a dose of sea-weed juice has given them a wonderful boost
and the tomatoes are romping around in the Spaceship.... all very good and happy
Our final piece of planting this week has been the north border – we are going to have green borders to the garden for a number of reasons : bio-diversity, bee forage, useful herbs, and some wind protection.

the OMG at the end of week 13
and the Potato and Bean patch at the end of Week 13
and one final view - the pumkins planted at the bottom of the dam wall - waiting for a future cascade of sumptuous bright orangeness ! ... just yellow flags at the moment.
Have a good weekend y’all….
