2018 Harvests and flowers!

Postby clothmama » Mon Jan 29, 2018 6:55 pm

Not too shabby - did home-made burgers for dinner and didn't have any salad stuff to put on them so I went out to the garden with a torch and managed to get a few leaves off some very small lettuces :giggle: Not bad for January at all! :widesmile:

Swiss Chard from last year been going really well until this week when it bolted a bit the chickens love it (and were constantly being chased away from it :giggle: ) I've actually left one bolted on in just for them to eat :hohoho:

We've had the odd strawberry but tonight we had our first decent harvest - 210grams! A 250gm punnet at the local shop (locally grown ones) is €3 - so really not bad!

Seems that the slugs are having a bit of a field day though as yesterday I got a big handful and had to chuck at least half of them :cry: I have put a cover over the main strawberry patch so the birds arent' eating them but they are still being got - very sad :(
