A bed of roses, sort of. The peonies have found a new home on our ‘new’ plot. They’re covered with cuttings from last year’s flowers, to protect them from the frost and they provide nourishment for next season.

The last of the carrots and not nearly the last of the radishes.
And by the looks of the weather forecast, also the last rays of sunlight until spring…

Clearing out the cold frame, but got distracted by a few raspberries that escaped my watchful eye. And then I proceeded to dig up some Jerusalem artichokes. And complete forgot about the cold frame. Does this happen to you as well? We’ve come to calling it “gardeners’ dementia”.

Things we learned from this year’s sweet potato experiment :
1) cold frame ❤️ sweet potato
2) harvest as many leaves as you can before frost hits. Blanche, freeze: greens all winter long.
3) the vines take root and then forms new slips. So that’s why we had 5 million sweet potatoes!

We have a few things in our garden just to keep our significant others happy. Curly kale is definitely not our favourite veg, but it keeps the family happy. Oh well, the things you do for love.
