All Change

The broad beans are out and the early potatoes have been dug, so what has replaced them? Leeks, and plenty of them, an early and a main crop variety. (Swiss Giant, Zermatt and Bandit).

Summer blooms

I try to pretend that I do all the garden work around here, but this picture from Mrs Soggy's side of things blows a blooming great hole in that claim.

Out with the old, in with the new

The production on the broad bean plants has been slowing, so yesterday out they came. (Sad in a way when you think what the autumn sown ones endured through the frost and snow).

Today I'll be doing dibber holes, dropping in the leek seedlings and then filling with water. I may dig a couple more rows of early potatoes and put some more leeks in to follow them also.
