I was going to post a picture of carrots I’d grown in a polystyrene crate. Sown in March I dug them yesterday to eat for dinner. I left them on the front step and when I returned there was nothing but the tops remaining. Tess had enjoyed them for her dinner instead. A few were a bit bent at the end where they’d reached the crate but not a bad crop for a small space and very little attention. The fresh food garden courses on 2 and 3 October only have a few places left so if you want some help getting your garden started, make sure you book soon.
Keep sowing seeds in pots and try sowing some seeds outside too.If you want to raise some chicks, now’s a good time of year to start if you’ve got a broody chook. It’s still cold at times but I’ve set up my swarm box in case there’s a passing swarm of honey bees. I’ll have tomato plants for sale again this year in November.
