For those of you who have been following such updates, the garden keeps on giving. For those of you new to the blog, I apologise, but you’ll see a lot of this.
This was from a quick whip around the blackcurrant bush – not bad for its first ever offering (this is a deceptively deep bowl by the way), and it should produce at least this amount again before August is out – next year, it ought to be producing twice as much again. My girlfriend says she wants to put this particular crop in a crumble – I’m good with this.
The vegetable patch is being extended, and I’ve found that the local recycling centre sells organic compost, or soil conditioner, for £3 a bag. I aim to be growing much more of what I eat over the next few months.
