Last month, I compared the first day of the January with the garden in July as I felt there was too little contrast between January and December. Then I looked at the photos and realised that in December the garden looked reasonably full. Well..
In comparison, the garden looks flat and empty right now!
Notwithstanding, there is plenty going on in terms of vegetables: apart from the broad beans I mentioned the other day, there are still a few kale plants with carrots growing under them; then there is the miner’s lettuce (winter purslane), onions and garlic as well as chard and cabbages which have overwintered.
Likewise, there are a few pak choi and purple sprouting broccoli, though neither of these look in the best of shape. The former are probably too attractive to various garden visitors and the latter were from old seed, but who knows once it warms up a bit.From memory, the garden in March looks even more desolate than February. However, since there are a few things which should have grown even more, this might be less the case this year. We shall see.
