Many summer crops are still pumping out the crops but the rocket had run amok and after flowering the leaves were no longer of any substance. So, it was time to get the choppers out and cut the bush by the compost bin back.
I’ve not done this so early in the year. That is, it had been a job I got round to later in the autumn. However, I would like the space and I am curious to see if it recovers with fresh leaves before winter sets in.
Now, at least I do have the space to plant out the final cauliflower and kales. Or maybe, as I found another small cucumber underneath the rampant rocket. But that will be harvested soon and then the work can recommence.
And the compost bin is full almost to the brim. I do hope it will go down before the other summer vegetables need to go in.
