Yes, I have been in the garden this week and things have been happening. For example, the onions I planted last week have started to take root.
And how do I know? Well, I guess birds must have got under the netting. Unless onions just spontaneously pop out of the soil. In any case, I hope that roots means leaves soon, so that they make it through the winter.
My greatest activity, however, has been picking a bunch of chard for another member of Leeds Permaculture Network committee. What I hadn’t expected in return was half a dozen eggs.
