Out on The Plots This Week:
I have really cracked on with that jobs list this week, and #146 is looking much more open and tidy, which feels good. The old Pea bed has been cleared,
compost and Blood Fish & Bone added, and the space divided inot two, one part of which has the last few of the Cavolo Nero Kale, Purple Kohl Rabi and Musselburgh Leeks are planted there, safely under fine mesh. The other half has two Tomatillo plants,
which are now well branched, some of the Chrysanthemums and Forget-me-nots for next Spring
The Asparagus bed is weeded and the old Parsley plants pulled up for the compost, clearing the space around one of the Apple trees. The Asparagus plants are looking
healthy and are still growing new shoots, which is a good sign.
I need to decide what to do with the two little triangular beds. One has a nice rose in it, which I shall leave, but not much else, while the opposite one has a few Crocosmias,a Kniphofia
and two Dahlias. Whatever I decide, they need the soil improved as it is very thin... or should I do away with them?
