A view of the plot from the entrance. Made to look greener than it is by the mesh windbreaks. I have covered some of my raised beds with straw for the winter… read somewhere that it was a good idea.
The ground just above the plot showing signs of wear and tear from passing heavy machinery, working at a nearby cottage.
The compost bin doubles up as a storage unit for some tools.
My overwintering red onions are popping up already.
Still a few fennel plants on the go. Didn’t get around to making candied fennel… maybe next year!
There’s plenty more beetroot to be picked! I have plans to try beetroot, apple and carrot juice, and beetroot-infused vodka.
Used coffee grounds to be added to the compost heap and raised beds. Supposedly repels slugs too, but it was way too wet to be effective this year.
