Who said gardening was difficult?

After rescuing a few stray cabbages before the caterpillars munch them has prompted an attempt to actually try and let them stay the course.

That’s only one row of cabbages; the rear net is to stop the pigeons trashing the onions; there’s a row of parsnips between the two. The courgettes to the fore seem to have survived the cold. The beetroot are coming on very slowly.

The raised beds aren’t looking too bad either.

There’s radishes, lettuce, peas, spinach and rocket.

The peppers, cucumber and tomatoes have stay hidden away in the greenhouse and no signs of any fruit yet; this time last year, the cukes were already producing.

And I have already had good usage from the (indoor) herbs: basil, chervil and dill.
