30th January
These pages are a rolling diary of the changes and events in the garden for the year 2022 in words and pictures.
January to April
Our first successful brussels sprouts, great abundance of the marvellous vegetables on the plants. However the slugs did have a field day with them late summer and autumn 2021 and there are hardly any leaves left apart from the tops which have grown in winter. We will go back to watering anti- slug nematodes into the veg beds around mid-March, it does seem to make a difference. We’ll put them down in the polytunnel too, left is one of our parsnips pulled up on 9th January and measuring 42cms, 16½ inches for those who prefer their parsnips measured imperially. The raised bed in the polytunnel has been very successful with root crops.
