Oh Dear !! I see that I haven`t written since October last year. That indicates just how busy we have been.
2013 was an amazing year for us as we grappled with a growing business, understaffed and with too many fingers in too many pies. 2014 will be a year of consolidation as we realise our limitations!! There is an equation between age, ambition, reality, sanity and hours in the day somewhere and they have to balance out! otherwise all is lost.
The new garlic crop is poking through and has a weed problem ! even though 2 crops of mustard were grown on this prior to planting. A nice cold snap and our tractor drawn hoe will see to most of this and the ridger should see to the rest but I think we might still be down with the hand hoes on the ridge tops. As soon as it dries out a bit I will be through with the tractor.
Larkspur sown at the end of August looking good.
Meanwhile outdoor sweet peas will be here
and some of the inside sweet peas are here
and will be here.
