I went out to the garden for the first time after much rain, fog and frost. Everything is drenched, looks dank and limp. We have had severe frost and lots of fog over the last few weeks. I was ill a few days in a row and didn’t get to cover the lower raised vegetable beds with plastic like I ususally do. Fortunately, the plants survived even though where they are is a frost pocket. The beds are obviously high enough to be out of the frost.
The passionfruit vines and sage aren’t doing very well with the frost and cold. I moved the sage and gave the passionfruit some seaweed solution.
The broadbeans, spinach and brusselsprouts are doing well as is the Winter grass in the future potato bed. The next lot of snow peas are coming up, the parsley is bushy and the lavender is flowering.
Today I picked mushrooms, small broccoli sideshoots and spinach to go with a chicken dinner.
