This year as well as growing onions from sets I'm also trying them from seed.So far so good.The leeks from seed are also a couple of months further advanced than last year.
|Garlic and onions from sets|
|Italian red onions (banana shallots? )from seed|
|Italian winter leeks|
|Red and black currants|
|Loganberries and a Tayberry|
There's now also a Community Garden Area where people from the village can come and pick crops in season.
Our shared greenhouse is a real boon.Although I have a couple of basic cold frames at home I try to bring stuff across to the site so that the others can keep it watered when I'm away!
As well as using it to start off the onions I'm now got brassica ,legumes,curbits and flowers,including some of last year's self seeded Black Magic sunflowers rescued from a nearby pot of mint.
|Re-homed sunflower seedlings|
|Pumpkin and cucumber|
|Succession peas and beans|
