gardening & foraging

Last of the crop

The very last bits of 2011’s back garden efforts are now ready for consumption. To be honest, we’d left these leeks in and forgotten about them, not really wanting to venture out into the garden to investigate the mess that’s always there after winter. But Spring is pretty much here now and things are already in action. Garlic, shallots and onions are roaring away in the front garden (I say garden, it’s a tiny patch of soil but good enough). Just need to work out what to plant in the back now. We’re increasing the number of raspberry canes to 8 or 9, since that was the best producer from last year.
