It might be a little optimistic but we’ve started some broadbeans. Fingers crossed that they will be fine in the coldframe.

Anyone else who is equally optimistic/naive?

Encouraged by the previous cardoon stalks I picked I thought these were going to be great! But they were bitter…

I can’t seem to figure them out. Anyone who knows the secret?

Isn’t this seaweed awesome?

Any experience adding seaweed to compost? Should we?

Our plastic crow ‘guards’ the strawberry patch in summer but is actually quite a good measure for how our rye is growing.

Winter apple storage.

I always take some apples to my dad’s so they can join his winter stash. We save the blemish-free and keep it dark and cool. Any other winning strategies for winter storage out there?

Roses to dream of.
