Having taken out the tomato plants which seemed to have been affected by blight the other day, there was now space for the compost bin to move and half the Senshu onions to go in.
After the success of the onions I planted in January, some of which got forgotten and are now growing again, I was keen to have more in the ground this winter. My local farm has not offered so much in the way of vegetables this year, so I am glad to have had plenty of my own to make up for this shortfall.
As for the compost, it was dry in the middle, so decomposition had been arrested. The dryness was down to the depth of material in the bin, so in future I need to add water as I add material. This might not totally deal with the issue but hopefully it will speed up the rotting process.
Apart from the tomato plants, black radish had been growing in the place where I wanted the bin, so they were pulled up this morning. I’d expected them all to be duff but as it turns out there were two rounded roots, so yet again there has been a lesson learned: thin out the black radishes!
