Our little patch of Earth

This time of the year is such an in between time where we have vegetables finishing off their turn in the beds and new ones starting out. There are beds that appear empty but under the soil little seeds are casting off their jackets and sending out their roots and radicles. Other beds are full of growth, rich and green. Here is a quick overview of what is growing on our little patch of Earth.

Left hand side, coriander. Front lettuce and courgette underground


Tiny corn plants under the "cat traps" to stop them digging up the seedlings.

My youngest's magical square foot garden, it is plentiful and pretty with all the different leaves

Potatoes in the foreground, broad beans behind

Gorgeous broad beans, loved by adults, hated by kids!
Spinach bed - all the bright lights!
What is growing in your "in-between" garden?

Your garden looks so lovely, Aunty Wendy! There is much compost making happening right now in ours...we also have a guy helping us out every monday - now he can push the heavy wheelbarrows and I can do the planting:). We have planted beetroot, carrots, courgettes, cucumbers, beans and more so far... Oh, and our hen became a momma to 13 fluffy chicks - now it is really starting to feel like we live on a farm! Much love and have a wonderful week:). Kelly x
