broad beans

Broad beans raised indoors then planted out about a month ago. Enviromesh lying on right – used to fling over cloche wires in case of hard frost. Photo: Sarah Eno

Sarah sent us some pictures from her vegetable garden with all sorts of things progressing nicely. (I’m very envious of those broad beans! – Ed.)

chin cabbage

Chin cabbage – chinese cabbage sown in greenhouse last autumn never made cabbage but now flowering (bees love it) and setting seed. Can pickle the pods if you really want! Photo: Sarah Eno

garlic

Garlic – these are same as winter picture but now growing well. Behind is remains of the green manure (hungarian rye does best) but there is a lot of self-sown red deadnettle which I have left to last minute to dig in because such good nectar plants. Photo: Sarah Eno

greenhouse

Greenhouse – general picture showing mainly the remaining winter crops gradually being cleared or interplanted with tomatoes, lettuce, peppers. The big green plant in the path is the Wild Rocket – a tenacious perennial which seeded from parent in a bed nearby. Photo: Sarah Eno
