Christmas is over and the goose was fat – thank you Lloyd ! Rain fell – heaps (23mm in 20mins the day after Boxing Day) so everything around here is still very green. The OMG is looking very lush but the week was quiet and relaxed as our new WOOFer demonstrates !
A few views of growing lushness …
However all is not quite well – it’s great in the OMG where all growing gorgeousness is protected by a very fine fence – outside in the Bean Border we find we are now feeding the rabbit population who love the borlotti beans. We are growing so many that we can afford to spare some, but I think the farmer will have to get out his gun again…..
Thoughts are now turning to the winter crops and in the Shade House we are bringing on the Brassicas which will go out soonish – there is a large population of Cabbage White butterlies around at the moment so we will hang on for a bit longer.
And so here we are at the end of 2011, and the end of Week 18 :
A very happy new year to all our readers, and may all your carrots grow straight and strong in 2012 !
