So, Tell Us, What Are Ye All At In The Veg Garden?

Recommended Posts

I'm only eyeing my veg patch up at the moment. A bit snowed under by other work at the moment.

 

Planning to plant nearly everything into lazybeds this year. Besides my spuds, what I sowed last year didn't make it :icon_redface:

 

Interested to know what everyone else is doing? Love seeing photos too if anyones got any. I haven't yet, but I will.

The old saying with mares tails is 1 year seeding 7 years weeding. :whistling:Ive had it on mine for over 20 years never been able to get rid of it. just hoe it off or hand weed when they come through. good luck with the plot. :thumbs:

Got an allotment planted in November last Broad Beans, winter onions,Garlic still somebody leeks left and cabbage. Got me spuds chiting ready to go out and some early peas in cold frame. Will be planting up seeds in next few weeks just hoping that the weather will remain dry so as to be able to get on and work it.

Put a dozen spring cabbage plants in a raised cradle covered with a cloche.

Planted broad bean seed in pots under glass.

Done a tray of summer cabbage.

 

Ground is cold and very wet at the moment

Oh yes! My friend is like that. We were only talking about the potatoes we planted last year. I put mine in the ground St Patricks day, fingers were blue with the cold. I got a very good yield of nice spuds. All he could say is how stunted they were at the start and how no one should do what I did.

 

I got lots of spuds, what's the fupping problem :laugh:

 

I didn't bother to mention to him how my maincrop were handful size when he went to his patch and could not get a feed for just himself, no doubt I done something wrong there too :laugh:

Here's my spot, I cut the ash tree's as they were blocking all the light last summer and burnt all the small stuff, the next couple of dry days we get I''m going hire a rotavator, might get a cheap ph kit and see if I need to lime it also:)
