Sunday in the garden

Next weekend we are going away to an apple farm so we had to get all our planting done. This meant cleaning out the last 3 beds...goodbye tomato stragglers, cucumber plants, rocket, corn stalks and hello potatoes!

We got some lovely spuds this time...must be at least 15kgs of the beauties.

Flower girl didn't want the pulled up marigolds to be put on the compost so she found somewhere to plant them.

Lucky played jungle dog...then came for cuddles.

We planted out our seedlings that we started in newspaper pots about 4 weeks ago. I hope they do well. We planted about 60 brassicas - red and white cabbage, loads of broccoli, purple cauliflower, Romenesco cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts.

Along with the beets, chard, peas, broad beans and salads we have planted we are almost full to the brim here.
