This & That
According to the weather man we were in for a day of downpours and high winds, he lied, we had some rain this morning and there was a breeze and the sun shone this afternoon and it all dried up.
I spotted popping up this afternoon
The Asparagus crowns I planted a few weeks back are springing into life of course we cant cut any of them, but its promise of future crops.
Other crops are coming on well
some of the Swiss chard will be ready for picking soon
Garlic is coming on a storm
Onions starting to bulb up
Cabbages are hearting up
There are young leeks ready for picking
Shallots are bunching
potatoes are emerging
Lots of promise of things to come, there is lots of other veggies coming along but I don't want to bore you with lots of veggie pictures
I picked a handful of radish to go with salad for my dinner, I did sow some more the other day, the next lot are a mix of red and white radishes.
This month we have sold £9 of duck eggs, not bad from two ducks.
This morning I had the electrician who did some work for us come round with the inspector, he needed to have some of his work checked so he could continue to issue certificates, I was happy for the work to be inspected, in return I had some work done for free.
Te other day I mentioned about Sol involving Kara in his ball game, I did a short video this afternoon of Sol with Kara for you to see
I throw the ball Sol runs to fetch it and drops it for Kara to bring back to me.
That's all for today :-)
