Garlic planting at Walnuts Farm



A quick roughen up with my Father’s 1960’s issue wooden handled ‘Wolf’ cultivator – and we’re ready to plant out the garlic that has been growing steadily in modules in the cold frames.

Last of the Brussels Sprouts.



We usually keep our brassicas going as long as possible to help us over ‘the hungry gap’ – that time between the point when the stored vegetables are used up or spoiled, and the new season’s vegetables start to produce. But these Brussels Sprouts are coming out now to make way for the garlic going in. We can’t resist one more picking of the smallest sprouts for tonight’s supper with sausages and mash. Fittingly the remainder will go to the pigs.
