Yesterday I harvested the first of the veg grown on Welsh soil
Purple Sprouting Broccoli and it was lovely served with
some of our own home reared welsh roasted pork.
Any veg that was harvested last year was grown in containers and brought with so this is a bit of milestone, there is more purple sprouting broccoli to come as well.
We had a lovely sunshine day again yesterday we are still needing the rain they keep telling us is coming but seems to miss us.
The day was spent finishing off planting the tomato plants in the poly tunnel
21 in total, 3 different variety's, Black Russian, Pink Vine and Beefsteak, next will be the peppers and chillies that are at the stage of re-potting so they will go straight into the ground in the poly tunnel.
We also got the border on the other side all done
So its all ready for growing now,
this week I will work on the path and connect up the watering system,
Martin got the Dandelion wine done
It now sits and ferments and then clears.
My early Blueberries are in flower
I have planted this one in the ground, the big terracotta pot it was in broke, so I dug a big hole and filled it with compost suitable for the blueberries I am hoping it does well as I have had this bush for
for many years now, I had intended to build a bed specifically for the blueberries but that has been put back for now.
Still lots of seeds coming on in the greenhouse, I will be glad when the young plants are planted out looking after baby plants is a lot of work.
The squashes need potting on again, the nights are far to cold for them to go out, same with the sweet corn and beans, peas will be out by the end of the week I hope.
